    Central Valley - Maybe seven will be a lucky number for Monroe-Woodbury students. Wednesday’s early spring snowstorm, which closed many area schools, used up the last snow day allocated this school year for Monroe-Woodbury School District students. Not factored into that are the numerous delayed openings happening over these past few months. Should an eighth snow day be necessary, the district would take back Friday, May 27, according to District Superintendent Edward Mehrhof on Wednesday, the beginning of a long four day weekend for many people. Students and their families who don’t want to see that happen may hope this seventh snow day will put end weather-related closings for this school year. In the Tuxedo School District, which only allocated three snow days, seven have also been used up as of Wednesday. The district had already published a list of days to be taken back, should further snow days take place. However, during the recent early March rainstorms, which flooded many area roads in Tuxedo, officials closed school for two days because of impassable roads. Interim District Superintendent Carol Lomascolo said Wednesday school officials are meeting with the Board of Education to discuss the plan of how to handle the unique circumstance of two “flood days.” More information on what will take place in Tuxedo is expected next week.
