Christie Says NJ’s Snow Days Will Be Made Up


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday that the state’s schoolchildren will have to make up the snow days they’ve missed in this unusually harsh winter, The Associated Press reported. Christie said his three school-age kids have lobbied him to relinquish the make-up requirement but “there’s 180 days school requirement and I’m not waiving it.” Many districts have had five or more snow days so far. Some shortened a recent winter break; others are shortening spring break or extending the end of the school year.
