Hebron, RHAM schools mull snow options

February 9, 2011 Local News No Comments

hebron-town-hallThere’s snow busi­ness on the agendas for the local and regional boards of education in Hebron this month.

RHAM Middle/High School – which serves Hebron, Andover and Marlborough – was closed Tuesday and Wednesday (Feb. 8 & 9) while snow was cleared from the roof of the building to prevent damage.

With these closures as well as those resulting from the many snowstorms that have hit the region this winter, the school cal­endar for the remainder of the year will also be discussed at the monthly regional school board meeting.

Meanwhile, an update on the condition of the roofs for Heb­ron’s two elementary schools will be provided at the local board of education meeting to be held Thursday (Feb. 10).

The school roofs are still being cleared, but both schools were open this week.

Hebron School Superintendent Eleanor Cruz notified parents in a letter sent home this week that Hebron Elementary School did incur some damage to the roof by snow blowers, leading to minor leaking that is being addressed this week.

Both boards will also deal with the question of how to make up snow days, as well as the days District 8 missed while removing snow from the school roof.

The Hebron Board of Education will review make-up days and a revised calendar at this week’s meeting.

The RHAM Board of Education currently has June 24 scheduled as the last day of school.

RHAM board members, though, will discuss whether to make up snow days further into June or take away vacation days from the April school recess.

The Hebron school board meeting will be at Gilead Hill Elementary School at 7 p. m. Thursday. Feb. 10.

The RHAM Board of Education meeting will be at RHAM High School at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 28.

Members of the public can com­ment on these and other issues at both meetings.
