Cambria Heights has recorded seven snow days, eight two-hour delays, and one early dismissal this school year. With all the instructional time missed, students would have been scheduled to attend classes up until Monday,

June 9, to make up the missed hours. Graduation would also have been pushed back until June 9. However, superintendent Michael Strasser proposed that some of that instructional time be made up during the year, rather than tacking the extra days on in June. At the Tuesday, March 25 meeting, the school board approved

Easter Monday, April 21, and Friday, May 9, as snow make-up days. Unless another snow day is recorded in the near future, the last day for students is going to be Thursday, June 5, and the last day for teachers will be the following day. Graduation will now be held Thursday, June 5. Assistant high school principal Kenneth

Kerchenske spoke with the board members on behalf on the marching band director, Michael Kokus, about creating an alumni night for the marching band next season. The alumni night invites all Cambria Heights marching band alumni — musicians, color guard, majorettes
