Where we live: Hamburg


The winter break next month will be a little shorter for students at Frontier Central School District because of all the snow days the district has had this year.

The academic calendar has been adjusted to reclaim two staff development days and the last day of the February break as student attendance days.

School will be in session and students should report this Friday , Feb. 20 and March 20.

If there are more snow days this year, additional days would be taken from the winter and spring breaks.
