Superior School District to extend school day by 7 minutes due to extreme winter weather

SUPERIOR, WI — The Superior School District has decided to extend each school day by seven minutes in order to make up for lost time due to weather.

The brutal cold in late January forced school officials to cancel class three times, which put the district over its two built-in inclement weather days.

The extended school days will take effect starting Monday, February 18, allowing the Superior School District to be in compliance with Wisconsin’s Hours of Instruction requirements.

Superintendent Amy Starzecki said the district considered several options.

“As the winter weather in our region is not yet over, we will continue to closely monitor conditions and make the best possible decision for the safety of our students, staff, and families when it comes to canceling school for weather related reasons,” Starzecki said.
