NEWPORT—Although the Valentines hadn’t been delivered, members of the Cocke County Board of Education meeting Thursday found themselves addressing the issue of making up snow days.

“There will be no school in Cocke County tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 14),” said Director of Schools Manney Moore, in his report to the board, “bringing the total number of days missed to 13. Of those, five are covered by the built-in days, which means we already have to make up eight days. And chances are good that we’ll miss more.”
