The Mitchell School Board on Monday night voted 4-3 to move the last day of this school year from Tuesday, May 28th to Friday, May 24th. The proposal came from Eric Christensen and was slightly amended. The request must be approved by the Mitchell Education Association, whose contract with the school district specifies that the school year shall consist of 176 days. The request is also contingent upon whether or not the district has any more days called off due to weather between now and the end of May. The Mitchell School District has gone over its allotted amount of snow days this year, including a stretch of three days in a row in April when school was called off due to a spring snow storm. The last day of classes was originally to be May 22nd.
