Putnam Schools Begin Snow Day Make-up

With continuing winter storms, the plan to start making up snow days in Putnam County will begin next week.  School officials say it will start with a longer school day. Starting Monday, February 14th, schools in Monterey are extending the day by 30 minutes. Monterey has missed 15 days of school so far this year. Meanwhile, all students in Putnam County will attend class on Feb. 21, originally scheduled as Presidents Day holiday. Once the snow days built into the calendar are used up, all students in the county will be going longer every day -- and they may have to extend the end of the school year to get in all of the required 180 days of instruction. But officials say, at this point, they still have no plans to cancel Spring Break.
