Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by ANDREW CASS Special to The Press in Local News

East Penn Superintendent Dr. Thomas Seidenberger discussed make-up days for Hurricane Sandy at the Nov. 12 board of school directors meeting.

The district had two extra days built into its schedule to account for inclement weather, but will have to make up the two other days missed because of the storm. Seidenberger said those make up days will tentatively be Feb. 15, 2013 and March 28, 2013.

Feb. 15. 2013 is the Friday before Presidents Day weekend and the students will still have off the Monday of the following week. March 28, 2013 is the Thursday before spring break.
