(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) St. Joseph students will now have to start summer vacation a little later this year thanks to their "extendend vacation" last week.
This year, the St. Joseph School District had four snow days already written into the 2017-2018 school year.
So far, they've had to use six snow days.
Three of which were due to the one-two punch of freezing rain and ice last week.
Superintendent Robert Newhart says the decision all comes down to the road conditions and if buses can get around to pick up students.
"We're either going to be in or out. We do not have a two-hour delay start schedule," Newhart said. "The feedback that we received on that is that it still causes daycare concerns for students and so we either call school or we go to school."
The two make up snow days for the school district will be taking place on Monday, May 21 and Tuesday, May 22.
