Weigh in on School District's Make-up Days.

Schools will be closed Friday because no snow days were used.

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.

That is the case this week, when Massapequa Public Schools will be closed. 

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.

Take our poll below, and weigh in with your comments.

God forbid that they actually have to teach an extra day. There are many days that the children only go in for a few hours but are counted as full days. They get enough time off, they could use some additional learning.

No the extra day isn't a problem. I do work but manage to work things out every year. The Calendar is published early enough each year , so there are no surprises.
