A greater number than usual of snow days has resulted in a longer school day for Kansas City, Kan., Public School students.
On Monday, students started a new schedule that added 15 minutes to the end of each school day to make up for missed time.
In a memo to parents, Superintendent Cindy Lane stated that besides the extra 15 minutes each day, one additional day would be added to the end of the school calendar to make up for snow days.
Her memo stated that seniors needed to have enough instructional time in order to graduate, and other students needed enough instructional time.
The new last day of school for most students will be May 23, and the last day for graduating seniors will be May 16. Preschool classes will not be affected.
