Albany - Dougherty County public school students will make up days lost because of storms. The Veteran's Day holiday, November 11th will be a makeup day, and Christmas break will be cut short with students returning a day earlier - January 4th. Teachers and staff will return from Christmas break January 3rd.

"Our teachers work very diligently to get a lot of learning packed into 180 days," said Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley. "When you short-change the teachers and students by three days, it can drastically impact a year."

Even though students are allowed to miss four days a year without making them up under state law, Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley doesn't want the students to miss out on learning.
