School Days Extended To Make Up Snow Days

This might a be a good idea for all schools to use so that students can make up snow days.

Virginia Beach Extends School Days For Snow Days

In order to make up for lost time because of snow, Virginia Beach Public School officials have decided to extend the school day 20 minutes each day for seven weeks. All Elementary, Middle and High School students are impacted.

The extended days begin Monday, March 1 and end Friday, April 30. The extra time will make up for instructional time lost as a result on snow, on February 1 and 2.

The added time will be tacked on to the end of the school day in most cases. However, instructional time will be added to the start of the day for afternoon kindegarten and for afternoon sessions at the Advanced Technology Center and Technical and Career Education Center.
