Many Southern Colorado students are making the most of this weekend, because starting Monday, their school days will get a little longer. Students in D-11, D-20 and D-38 will begin making up for time lost on snow days.

District 20 will add 20 minutes to the end of its school days. Pine Creek High School student Mary Back says that's just find with her.

"It's so worth it," said Back. "When those snow days came, I was so tired of school, and there would always be a big test the next day, so we'd just get another day to study."

District 11 is making up for its snow days by starting classes 15 minutes early in the morning, and adding 15 minutes to the end of each day. In Monument, District 38 will start elementary school classes 15 minutes early.

In addition to extended school days, students in D-20 will now have to attend school April 24, a day originally scheduled as a teacher in-service day.
