Memorial Day sneaking up on end of school district calendarThe cushion between May 19 — the last day of school — and the May 29-31 Memorial Day weekend looked pretty comfortable when the Mitchell School District originally planned its 2009-2010 school calendar. That was before the district racked up five snow days this month, including Jan. 6-8, Jan. 20 and Jan. 25. Now the final day of school is May 24 — and counting. If the district has any more snow days, they will be added to that date, says Superintendent of Schools Joe Graves.
