Classes end for two North Alabama Schools

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - Students in at least two North Alabama School systems finished the school year today.

Very few students made it to the last day of class at Cedar Ridge in Decatur. That's because most parent opted to let their children begin their Summer holiday early.

Decatur's superintendent said this school day is a required makeup day because of all the snow we had over the Winter.

"We're required by the state to do 180 days for students. It's important for state funding. It's important to comply with state law. And we have every intention of doing that," said Dr. Sam Houston, Decatur Superintendent.

In addition to Decatur, today was also the last day in classes for students in Madison City schools.
