Superior extends school days a second time
The Superior School District is extending its school day for a second time this year.
Beginning Monday, April 29, the school day will begin 10 minutes earlier and end 11 minutes later for a total of 21 additional minutes. The day is being extended to due to snow days that were called on April 11-12. The school district had already added 7 minutes to each school day earlier this winter.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz signed a bill, passed by the House and Senate, to forgive snow days for the 2018-2019 school year.
In Wisconsin, the only way a school district could forgive school days without penalty is by submitting a waiver to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. But according to an email sent to Wisconsin school districts by the agency, no such waivers will be approved.
