JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Students in Jackson public schools will have to go to school on Saturday, April 5, and Monday, April 21, to make up days missed because of bad weather on Jan. 28 and 29.

April 21 is the Monday after Easter.

The Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees is recommending that the Saturday make-up day be short. It would extend a short day scheduled Friday, May 23, into a full day to compensate.

Spokesman Sherwin Johnson says the 60 percent day would dismiss students at noon from elementary schools, 12:30 p.m. from middle schools and 1 p.m. from high schools on April 5.

Regular transportation and food services will be provided on both make-up days.
