Andover High makeup day set for Saturday, April 27

Half day of school still scheduled townwide for Good Friday

(Continued)

When it came time to vote, committee members David Birnbach and Dennis Forgue both opposed holding school on Good Friday. Their dissenting votes left the board in a 3-2 split on the decision, with the majority narrowly winning out.

Both indicated that their preferred alternative was to hold school on two Saturdays instead of one Saturday and a religious holiday.

With the votes, Andover public school calendars have seen the following adjustments:

ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE SCHOOLS (includes Shawsheen School, a choice school): School to be held on Good Friday, March 29. Final day of school will be held Friday, June 28.

ANDOVER HIGH SCHOOL: School to be held on Good Friday, March 29, as well as Saturday, April 27. Final day of school will be held Friday, June 28.
