ROGERSVILLE, Mo. -- Snow days are adding up for school districts across the Ozarks. So are make-up days, and there's five more weeks of winter. Now districts are evaluating options to satisfy state attendance requirements.
In the Logan-Rogersville School District, kids are finally back to class, with plenty of stories to tell about their time off in the snow.
"We went sledding," said Noah Higdon.
"My daddy made an igloo," said Karissa Bariteau.
"I accidentally threw a snowball at her face, right here," said Anisa Drake.
"Every time I went sledding down, either I fell on my face, or the snow came flying up," said Zach Higdon.
Their total number of snow days is at eight, with four missed days of class last week.
"The routine, probably, is disrupted the most, particularly with our younger kids," said Logan-Rogersville Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Tucker.
Now, it's back to getting up early.
"I had one that fell asleep this morning on the carpet, so they definitely were not used to being back after four days gone," said kindergarten teacher Sara Boyts.
