A mild winter has many students complaining about a lack of snow days. However, the lack of snow days has resulted in Powell County students getting out early-- very early!

For the first time in school history, Powell County students are getting out way ahead of schedule. "I've been working here for twenty plus years and we've never gotten out this early," explains Sarah Wasson, Director of Pupil Personnel in Powell County. "It really has been a benefit not only for students but also for teachers. "It has helped with the curriculum," explains Wasson, "it was not interrupted like it has been in years past so students were able to retain more information without any gaps or holes in the schedule."

Last year Powell County school district had 26 snow days. Two years ago, they had 29, the most they've had in decades.

The last day of school is official May 3rd. Seniors will graduate on May 6th and summer school will start on May 14th.
