North Idaho Schools Get Two More Weeks Vacation
MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Students in a northern Idaho school district will get two more weeks of summer vacation after construction delays led the school board to postpone the start of the school year.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that at least one bathroom in each school in the Moscow School District is still under construction. The work on the bathrooms is part of a larger district-wide renovation project that includes new science classrooms, new roofing and new windows, Superintendent Greg Bailey said Tuesday.
The school year was supposed to begin Aug. 26, but has been pushed back until Sept. 8. Students will make up the lost days during shortened vacation breaks and by attending classes a few days longer next summer.
