Winter weather systems that brought ice, snow, sleet and freezing rain to the Clark County area during the past two weeks caused school to be canceled for a total of four days. Earlier this week, Camas and Washougal school district officials announced the calendar changes that are necessary as a result.

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.
