With the recent barrage of storms canceling school across Maine, district officials are weighing their options on how to make up so many snow days.
Most schools build in about five snow days into the school calendar. Unfortunately, many districts, including Portland and South Portland, have already hit that limit.
South Portland Superintendent Ken Kunin says the upcoming storms could wind up extending the school year into the last week of June.
“We really don’t wanna go there if we don’t have to. But we’ll take it if it comes,” he says.
