School year is lengthened as snow days add up for NH students
All of the snow Monday means yet another snow day for students. It's really adding up. Already this year Manchester, Nashua and Portsmouth school districts have had four snow days each. Concord has had one fewer at three.
Those days need to be made up, so they'll likely extend the school year. As of now, the districts are estimating their revised last day of school, but there will likely be more snow days before winter is done and more revisions to be made.
Current estimated last school day:
Manchester - June 23.
Nashua - June 18.
Concord - June 18.
Portsmouth - June 22.
Another concern for schools, they're eating up their snow removal budgets. No specific number were provided, but several superintendents said it's definitely a concern for them this year.
