School districts extend year due to snow days

Winter weather resulted in the loss of four days of school

Due to the icy weather that caused school to be canceled for several days these past few weeks, all of the built-in snow days in the Washougal and Camas school districts will be used.

The school year will be extended further into June to make up for the four missed days. Both districts ask that families avoid making travel plans that start the week that school gets out.

In Washougal, students will now attend school on Monday, Feb. 6. The last day of school will be Thursday, June 22, with a three-hour early release.

In Camas, Friday, Feb. 17 will be used as the first snow make-up day. The other three days will be added to the school calendar at the end of the year, with the last day of school being Friday, June 23. Additionally, due to the number of snow days, all Camas elementary schools will send report cards home on Wednesday, Jan. 4.
