Every year and other school districts play a guessing game with mother nature.
They have to build in enough extra days into the school calendar to make sure that summer vacation isn't postponed.
At the same time, if they build to many days into the schedule, they designate certain days where school sessions that were originally scheduled, are canceled.

For some, it creates an even longer holiday weekend, while others have to scramble to take care of child care issues.
We want to know if you how Massapequa has fared in dealing with this problem.
