Kids in Stafford County schools can still sleep in on Saturdays and enjoy Spring break with their parents this year.
Saturday school and nixing the break were rumored options to make up for 16 missed snow days. Instead, some early release days will be full and a teacher workday will be canceled. Stafford's days are already 20 minutes longer than other counties all year and what the state recommends. It helped them bank time, so it didn't have to take more drastic measures.
Caroline had already added a few days to the year, canceled holidays and teacher work days. Starting on Monday, kids in Spotsylvania schools will have 25 minutes a day added for the rest of the year.
