Wayland Schools December Vacation Schedule Will Remain Unchanged

The parent/guardian poll results overwhelmingly favored keeping the same dates for December vacation.

The votes are in and Wayland Public Schools will not alter December vacation to make up a couple of early-season snow days.

asking parents to vote on the possibility of making up during December vacation either one or both snow days caused by the October nor'easter.

Fifty-two percent of parents who participate in the poll, however, voted to leave the schedule as is and make up the snow days at the end of the school year in June. The results were a bit different among staff, with only 23 percent voting to keep the December schedule as is, but Superintendent Paul Stein said he did hear from a number of staff members that they were unable to change plans they'd already made, "creating  significant converage problem."

"For these reasons, we'll hope for a mild winter so that we don't have to extend the school year into the last week of June," Stein wrote in an email announcing the poll results.

Complete results are as follows:

Parent/Guardian Resuts:

Keep schools closed on Thursday, December 22 and Friday, December 23.
52% Keep school open on Thursday, December 22 and closed on Friday, December 23.
