PERRY COUNTY — Spring break is coming earlier than expected for students of Perry County Schools. There will be no school in the Perry County School District March 14, March 15, March 16, March 17 and March 18. Students will return to class on March 21.
The original dates for spring break were March 30 through April 1. Students will now be in class on those dates. High absentee rates due to sickness led to an extra two days of cancellation on top of the regular number of days already allotted for Spring Break. Buckhorn High School’s boys basketball team won the 14th Region Championship and will begin play in the state tournament at 12:00 p.m. on March 16.
