WICOMICO CO., Md. - A local school district is excusing absences from Tuesday, due to the cold weather.
John Frederickson, Superintendent of the Wicomico County Public Schools, says that any students who were kept home due to the cold weather on January 7th, while schools were in session, can be sent in with a note when they return.
The note must state the cold as the reason for the absence, and request the absence be excused. Officials say students will be allowed to make up the work that they missed, but clarify that although the absence will be excused, it will still count as an absence from school.
