eLearning Days:

Brown County Schools will use an eLearning Day for every school closure that takes place due to inclement weather unless there are consecutive days of school closure. If there is a need for consecutive closure(s) after the eLearning Day, those days will be made up as a Snow Makeup Day.

Dr. Hammack will make an announcement regarding the school day status (eLearning Day or Snow Makeup Day) every time that school is closed due to inclement weather.
