Presidents Day A Hurricane Make-Up Day For Brevard Schools

President's Day A Hurricane Make-Up Day For Brevard Schools

BREVARD COUNTY, Florida – Students and employees at Brevard Public Schools will not have President’s Day off because the holiday is being used as a Hurricane Dorian make-up day.

Brevard Public Schools revised its calendar for the 2019-2020 school year in order to accommodate make-up days that were lost after a district-wide closing of schools due to Hurricane Dorian from Tuesday, September 3, 2019, through Thursday, September 5, 2019.

During this time, students missed three (3) instructional days.

For two of the make-up days, the last day of the first semester was moved from Wednesday, January 8, 2020, to Friday, January 10, 2020.

For the third make-up day, the Teacher/Student Holiday on Monday, February 17, 2020, is now a regular school day.

The remainder of the revised Brevard Public Schools calendar appears at the end of this article.

When Is Presidents Day 2020?

Presidents Day is another term used for the holiday celebrating George Washington’s birthday that is observed on the third Monday in February.

In 2020, Presidents Day falls on Monday, February 17.

Is Presidents Day A Government Holiday?

Presidents Day is a government holiday which means that many schools and government offices are closed along with some private businesses.

Presidents Day originally came from the federal holiday for George Washington’s Birthday.

But after the observance was changed to the third Monday in February, the holiday has become to be known as “Presidents Day” to celebrate both Abraham Lincoln’s birthday and Washington’s birthday in most states.

However, the federal government has never officially changed the name from Washington’s Birthday to Presidents Day.
