Kids in Prince William County may regret this past winter's snowstorms when they're spending more time in school on sunny spring days.
Prince William school officials have proposed adding an extra 10 minutes to each day starting on May 10.
The county had 15 additional instruction days built into the calendar, but because of the snow, the district is on pace to fall a bit short of the 990 hours of instruction time required by the state.
The plan to add time to the school day will be brought to the school board for approval on Wednesday.
Many school districts in the D.C. region have added a day or two to the calendar or received waivers of instruction-time requirements.
