Local school boards have been scrambling to make up time in class missed because of snow and ice.
Now Spotsylvania County elementary and middle school kids will be there for full days on March 7th and April 4th, which were originally scheduled as half days. Virginia requires a minimum of 990 instructional hours per year from school divisions and many divisions are cancelling holidays or teacher workdays and tacking on days to the end of the school calendar.
