Making up for snow days in summer not popular

School districts in Door and Kewaunee Counties are pondering the best ways to make up for last week's winter closures.  One item that is not so popular is shortening summer vacation.  Algoma School Superintendent Nick Chocart says, while the final decision has not been made, adding a few longer school days is preferable.


Washington Island Schools Principal Michelle Kanipes says her district is also looking at longer days and possibly a shorter spring break.  That's because the district wants to maintain an end-of-year tradition.


Under the school year calendar set by the state, three extra days are built in to accommodate snow days.  All area schools were closed due to heavy snow and extreme cold last week, leaving two days to be made up.
