New Richmond, Wis., man charged with kidnapping two women in Afton

April 18 added as school day in District 833

The South Washington County School Board approved adding April 18 as a makeup day after the district had to cancel a sixth school day due to weather.

Board members approved the extra day at their March 6 meeting.

April 18 is Good Friday. Administrators and School Board members had considered three possible days to add classes.

Adding the day will cost the district roughly $30,000, District 833 Finance Director Aaron Bushberger said. That figure takes into account the savings from not holding school on the six weather-related closures.
