Why not add the missed days to the end of the year?
Because adding missed days to the end of the year interferes with the NM GAP Program that begins after Memorial Day. The GAP Program is a transition program where the current preschool students (incoming kindergarten students) attend kindergarten for two weeks to help them learn kindergarten routines and feel more comfortable with their transition to full days in the fall. Additionally, adding days to the end of the year would affect the New Sharon Child Care and Preschool, and interferes with summer sports schedules.
