Saturday classes scheduled for New Hanover Co. students after winter storm

Posted: Updated:

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – With another day of missed school due to winter weather, students in our area have a lot of days to make up.

February 14 would have been the first school make-up day for the hours teachers lost with their students in January.

School officials have worked around holding make-up classes during spring break, but they haven't been able to avoid Saturdays.

County officials say class time will be scheduled for February 22 to make up for the time missed February 12.

One teacher, however, thinks it will be hard to motivate students to show up for class.

"It makes for a long week when you work a six day week," Laney High School Teacher Cindy Richards said. "That's a long week for everyone to stay on task and be as productive as we need to be. But we have to be done by a certain day in June, and we can't extend it any further."

No word yet from officials on when students will make up the time missed February 13.
