March 26, 2014 - School makeup days

With 10 snow cancellations this school year, Clarkston Community Schools added some makeup days. Classes will be in session through Tuesday, June 10, officials said.

Thursday, June 5, was formerly a half day but now will be a full day of school. Full days are also planned on Friday, June 6, and Monday, June 9. The last day of school, June 10, will be a half day.

Six snow days are allowed by the Michigan Department of Education. Proposed state legislation, HB4295, would allow for fewer make-up days. The bill passed in the state House of Representatives, but is still pending in the Senate.

No change is planned to the schedule for high school seniors.

Walk request tabled

Clarkston City Council tabled a request, Monday, by city resident Belinda Belcher to have a fund-raising walk downtown on May 4.

Belcher said her 13-year-old son has Ring Chromosome syndrome. The walk would support research into the rare disease.

City attorney Tom Ryan said before the city council approves the event, she must obtain an insurance policy protecting the city.

Belcher said she was unsure of where to obtain the policy, but would check into it and come to another meeting.

Scrapbooking crop

The First Congregational Church of Clarkston hosts a Scrapbooking Crop fund raiser on Saturday, March 29, from 9 a.m.-10 p.m.

Registration is $40 to the event, which includes continental breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks along with a goodie bag and prizes.

Registration deadline is March 24. For more information, call the church, 5449 Clarkston Road, at 248-394-0200.
