School has been closed six times, North said. Two of the days were due to a mix of heating issues, busted pipes, and bus concerns. The remaining days were cancelled due to road and weather conditions.
State law no longer mandates that schools make up calamity days after the first five, requiring only that schools exceed a certain number of hours of instruction, determined by grade level. But Fairborn and some other school districts — including Mad River and Greeneview — have approved school calendars that still choose to make up days if they miss more than five.
