MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Kids in Milford went to school today, but they missed 6 days in the past two weeks, and they're going to have to make up that time.
School officials already decided kids will be in school for some of the February vacation week. That could mean trouble for family vacations.
"We love going away in February. We will still go away, because it's something that we've already planned," Susan Ardolino, the mother of a student, said.
But Superstorm Sandy was not planned. With no power and blocked roads, it meant the district used up all those snow days before it even snowed. That means not only will there be school during part of February break, but they're also extending the school year by several days into late June.
"I think that becomes an issue if it starts to get really hot, which happens a lot like that third week in June," Sarah Wardman, another mother, said.
This schedule change only covers the last storm so if this is a snowy winter, the rest of the February break will disappear, then April Break, then they'll extend the school year further. And if all that isn't enough, the last resort is, kids will go to school on Saturdays.
News 8's Kent Pierce said to Ardolino, "school on Saturdays, can you imagine?"
"No, I can't imagine school on Saturdays," Ardolino said.
Kissing the kids goodbye for a Saturday school day is a very last resort, but nobody knows what else might happen in what has already been an eventful school year. Some say it's too early to even try planning.
"I think it's too early to take away all the school days because a lot more snow could happen, so I think that's not necessarily the wisest thing to do," Fiona Hackett, another parent, said.
