School days extended for WSD3 kids


Last updated 1/8/2020 at 2:18pm

Students returning to Widefield School District 3 today will stay an extra 10 minutes past the usual release time. This will continue through the school year to make up for several snow days already used before the winter break.

Officials say the extra time is needed to ensure the district meets the state-required number of student-teacher hours. It has been several years since D3 has had to add minutes to each day.

Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 has more days built into its calendar, so no extra time is needed yet.
