Putnam Students Facing Longer Days
Starting Monday, Putnam County school students will go to class 15 minutes earlier and stay 15 minutes later at the end of the day to make up for snow days. The longer day and the decision to hold classes on election day, May 4th, will allow the school system to make up for the two snow days the system has taken this year beyond the 13 that were built into the school calendar. School officials say they also have a contingency plan in the event that any additional classroom days are called off because of the weather.
