What happens if the nice weather continues?

“We always build in snow days to the school calendar and if we don’t use any snow days, then one day will be added to the weekend break on Memorial Day weekend. That one day is actually returned to the staff and they’re off and they have an extended weekend during that time,” assistant superintendent Bancroft Burke told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall.

He said not using any snow days is rare.
