    Students love snow days, there's no question about that. But when it comes time to make up those days, they're not generally quite as excited.

    However, bad weather this winter has canceled classes on five days for Campbellsville Independent students. And now the District is planning ahead in an attempt to prevent students from attending classes in June.

    As a result, the Campbellsville School Board approved a proposal at Monday night's Board meeting for students to attend school on Monday, Feb. 16. The day was originally scheduled as a holiday in honor of Presidents Day.
