Richmond Public Schools: March 6 and 7 regular school days

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Students at Richmond Public Schools will now be at school for full days instead of half days on March 6 and March 7.

The School Board made the changes following the long line of winter weather storms that closed schools for eight days. March 6 and 7 were originally scheduled to be early-dismissal parent/teacher conference days.

RPS says the changes are being made despite the 90 additional hours in the schedule because of the significant instructional time lost during a crucial period. There is also the possibility of other weather-related challenges.

School officials are working on options for making up the parent/teacher conference.
