Muskogee School Board Votes To Extend School By 26 Minutes After Snow Days

Posted: Updated:
MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -

School districts have to make up the lost time because of snow. Tulsa's doing it one way; Muskogee's doing it another.

The Muskogee School Board voted today to make the school day longer to make up for time lost .

"We figured that we need to ask 26 minutes to the day for the high school and 25 minutes for the junior high and elementary to make up for the days we've already missed and to build in two more days just in case we have more bad weather," Wendy Burton said.

Muskogee students will be starting 10 minutes earlier and staying 16 minutes later.

In Tulsa, the district is adding days on to the end of the school year, which will make up for the lost time and build up two more days in case there's more snow.
