Counting today, the Trenton R-9 school district has missed six days of school during the current academic term.

As a result, the board of education approved school calendar means Friday May 23rd is the now the final day of school. Of course, that is subject to not missing any more days of school. Days that Trenton have missed are December 20th, January 6th and 7th, and three this week: February 4th, 5th, and 6th. Adjustments were made on four other occasions but they count as a “full day” of school. There was an early out on January 31st. And, the late start option has been utilized three times. Two hour delays were used November 22nd, January 23rd, and 27th.

The department of elementary and secondary education reports schools are required to build six snow days into their calendar. That would be full day sessions. After six days accumulate, the department says half-day makeups are allowed.

KTTN reviewed our monthly summaries for the winter of 2013-14 and Trenton has officially received 25 inches of snow in the past two months. That's above our long term average for snowfall. Normal snowfall at Trenton is around 20 inches. Measurable snow has been noted on ten different dates going back to December 8th. In December,
there was seven and three quarter inches on four dates; in January, there was five and one half inches with four dates; and this month, Trenton has 12 inches on two dates.

One year ago, the February 2013 snowfall at Trenton totaled 18 inches from four different reporting periods that were late in the month.
