Craven County Schools has announced it will not have to make up snow days from Feb. 11 and 12.



According to a release, state law requires 1,025 instructional hours. Should there be no more disruptions to the schedule through the end of the school year, Craven County would have 1,037.5 instructional hours, which is more than the required number.



The school system had previously announced make-up days for the January snow storm in which schools were out for four days. Two of the days have already been made up. For the other dates, a half-day scheduled for March 14 for staff development will now be a full instructional day, while March 17, previously a day off for students, will become a full instructional day.



The Feb. 11-12 winter storm dropped a combination of sleet and snow on the area. Most of the central part of Havelock was covered in about 2 inches of snow and sleet, while areas just west of the city at Tucker Creek, Carolina Pines and Stately Pines received about 6 1/2 inches of snow.
