The vote was not unananimous, but the Charlottesville School Board has a plan to make up its snow and ice days. The board voted 5-2 Thursday to use the Friday before spring break as a “make good” day.  Kids went to school on February 17th, and they will now have classes on March 28th. Students will also go to school all day Friday, June 6th, and the division will use three “banked days” to satisfy the state. Leah Puryear (pictured) and Amy Laufer were the only board members who voted against the plan.
