CARTERET COUNTY -

Because Carteret County Public Schools were closed for 4 days last week due to the snow, students will be required to make up for the missed hours.

According to the school district, the Board of Education voted Tuesday night to add 14 minutes of instructional time to each school day from Feb. 18 through June 5.

Principals at each school will announce how the 14 minutes will be added at their schools by Feb 10.

In addition, Feb. 17 will be changed from a workday to an early release day. April 18 will be changed from an early release day to a full instructional day.
