NORFOLK -- It's a good way to teach your kids that little in life is free. A day off now, means a day on later.

Some schools have missed seven days due to inclement weather.   The extra snow days most districts built into the calendar in anticipation of inclement weather were used. 

The following school districts have announced their make-up days: 

Chesapeake Public Schools will now go to school on Monday, March 31, which was previously designated as a teacher workday.  They will also add 6 minutes to the end of the school day -- beginning March 17 until June 11.

Hampton City Schools officials say their make-up days will be April 21, May 23, June 12 and June 13.

Newport News Public Schools announced that student half-days set for March 7 and April 18 will now be full-days.
