Snowy Papillion 3-7

Residents in the Eagle Hills neighborhood near Castle Pine Drive and Franklin Street in Papillion deal with more snow Thursday.

In what feels like a case of never-ending déjà vu, school districts again canceled classes on Thursday because of snow.

It was the sixth or seventh day of weather cancellations for metro area school districts. Here’s what that means for various district school calendars:

Bellevue Public Schools

The district has used seven snow days but will not have to add more days to the end of the school year. The district tweeted that if it hits 10 snow days, then discussions will begin about making up days.

Elkhorn Public Schools

The district has used six snow days. District officials had already added two days to the school calendar, pushing the final day from May 22 to May 24. The last day remains May 24, spokeswoman Kara Perchal said.

Millard Public Schools

The district has used six snow days. Millard Superintendent Jim Sutfin said that the last day of school is May 31 and that if the district is forced to cancel additional days, he would consider adding time to the school day.

Omaha Public Schools

The district has used six snow days, but district spokeswoman Monique Farmer said there’s no concern about needing to add to the school year now.

Papillion-La Vista Community Schools

The district has used seven days. Nothing has changed officially from the prestorm blog announcement Superintendent Andy Rikli made Monday, which set the last school day on May 29.

The calendar shows that the district still holds in reserve a potential makeup day, Thursday, May 30.

Rikli said he is most worried about seniors losing any more time.

Officials did move the last day for seniors from Thursday, May 9, to Friday, May 10.

Westside Community Schools

The district has used six snow days, but spokeswoman Brandi Paul said the district does not need to add time to the school year. The district builds its schedule by hours, not by days.
