couldn't they just do a half day Saturday or two?

Unfortunately I am sure similar situations will arise in the future. The early recommendation was to close the schools, then that was changed. I think the latest any school should go is June 30. Lawmakers should really re-think this one.

"The measure passed both the state House of Representatives and the state Senate, but wound up back before the Senate because of changes in the House."

They asked for an exception to the 180 day rule and it passed both chambers. What could the House have possibly changed that made a difference in a basic bill like this? This doesn't make sense.

I agree about the 1/2 day Saturdays. I recall doing that many years ago to make sure we weren't going to school in JUly after a bad winter.

What happened to the state statute that ends schools after June 30th?
