At the Nov. 27 meeting of the Long Beach Board of Education, the district announced an amended vacation schedule for the 2012-13 school year. In order to make up for those school days lost in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Long Beach Public Schools will be holding classes on Feb.19-22, 2013. These days had previously been designated as winter recess days. Classes will also be held on March 25 and April 1, formerly designated as spring recess days. The spring recess days of March 27 and March 28 have been designated as possible snow make-up days.
