Fauquier Co. adds school day to make up for snow

WASHINGTON — Fauquier County students will be in class for a full day this Friday, rather than a half day.

The Fauquier County School Board voted for the change Monday night to make up a few hours of instructional time lost to time off for snow.

The board approved contingency plans if the school system falls short of state requirements.

If needed, an extra 10 minutes to 15 minutes will be added to the elementary school day. And, if needed an additional day, Friday, June 5, will be added to schedule. Parents will be notified if there are changes.

Here is the recap of the remainder of the Fauquier County school year:
