Shawnee Mission schools will close out 2012-13 year May 23

Good news, kids! Remember those snow days in February? Well, they aren’t going to cost ya’ a thing!

The Shawnee Mission School District announced Wednesday that it would be sticking to its originally published end-of-the-year calendar, and not extending class to make up for lost time in on account of the snowstorms. As was the case last year, Indian Hill students will dismiss two days early to give staff more time to prepare for summer construction:
