Some school officials in Monroeville and Pitcairn were forced to tweak the school calendar this month due to sub-freezing temperatures, while others had nothing to worry about.

Record breaking lows shut down Gateway School District, North American Martyrs and St. Bernadette on Jan. 7. Propel Pitcairn was closed Jan. 7 and Jan. 8.

Gateway officials scheduled a Feb. 14 make-up day, which originally was scheduled as an in service day, district spokeswoman Cara Zanella said this week. As of Monday, administrators at North American Martyrs had yet to settle on a make-up day.

The calendar for Propel Pitcairn included more school days than needed, in case of weather-related cancellations, so a make-up day is not necessary, school officials said Monday.

St. Bernadette school closed for one day this month, but had one emergency day on the calendar, so no changes were necessary.
