LUXEMBURG, Wis. (WFRV) – The Luxemburg-Casco School District says there will be no school on November 17, due to the ‘unexpectedly high volume’ of staff requests for time off.
The Luxemburg-Casco School District posted on its Facebook page about a change in scheduling for November 17. There will reportedly be no school on Friday, November 18, due to the ‘unexpectedly’ high volume of time off requests from district staff.
Officials say that the inability to provide adequate supervision caused the decision to have no school that day. To make up for the off day, the in-service day that was scheduled for January 15 will now be an instructional day, according to the district.
Students will be expected to attend school on January 15. Teachers will make the time up by adding an in-service day at the end of their contract year.
Luxemburg-Casco did make it to the 2023 WIAA State Football Championship for Division IV and plays on November 16 at 7:00 p.m. With Camp Randall Stadium in Madison being several hours away, the cancellation could be for students and staff to celebrate making their first-ever state championship, but district officials have not confirmed that.
Change in District scheduling on Friday
Due to the unexpectedly high volume of District staff requests for full day, time off on Friday and therefore the inability to provide adequate supervision, there will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, November 17th.
To make up for this lost time, the in-service day scheduled for January 15th will now be an instructional day. Students are expected to attend school on January 15th.
