WNC Teachers To
Get Checks Before
Haywood cimmys srnooi teach
ers don't have to worry about how
the bad weather will affect their
next pay checks.
County Schools Superintendent
Jack Messer said today the regu
lar salary checks would be issued
"The loss of time caused by the
bad weather," he explained, "will
necessitate our running the school
term through that date." .
The schools will reopen the
morning of January 3.
The three days lost because of
the" adverse weather will lie made
! up January 3, 4, and 5.
This, however, will give the
students and teachers a Christmas
vacation only one day shorter than
the normal time.
The State Hoard of M oration le-
;cided Thursday that all Western
North Carolina teachers will get
their regular pay cheeks before
Christmas and that it would be up
to the county boards to decide how
tile lost time will be made up.
