Thanks to two snow days, Willmar teachers will work two extra days; most will pack for reorganization


WILLMAR -- Teachers in Willmar will work two extra days this spring to make up for two snow days.

The School Board approved extending the year two days for teachers at its meeting Monday.

With about two-thirds of teachers in from kindergarten through eighth grade moving to different classrooms or buildings this year, it makes sense to use that time to pack, Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard said.

The teachers have already been paid for those two days, he said.
