BARTON COUNTY — Many of the schools in the state of Kansas are running out of snow days for the school year and may have to make up time. However, area schools are okay with the number of snow days so far this year.

USD 355

"As of now, we are fine since we were measurably above the minimum requirements," said Superintendent Ben Jacobs. "However, if this continues and we get another period of inclement weather, additional days will certainly be very realistic.

"We want to insure that appropriate instructional time is allocated for academic success for all our students," he said.

USD 112

After last Wednesday, USD 112 has 2.5 days left that the school could cancel, said Steve Woolf, superintendent of USD 112.
