New Haven Students to Make Up Snow Day

School officials in New Haven will add an extra day to the academic calendar after more snow kept students home again for the third time Monday.

The city built two snow days into its school calendar, and since Monday was the third snow day of the year, a day of school will be added on June 18.

Schools officials outlined the possibility of extra days in a letter to parents in November, which explained that the first seven additional snow days will be added to the end of the school year. Additional days will be taken from April vacation if need be.

“There's nothing you can do about it. The snow is snow, you can't stop it. We have nothing to do about it,” said Cedric Herbert, a New Haven grandfather.
