Carroll County students will spend an extra 50 minutes a day in school for two weeks, April 15-26, to make up time lost to snow and ice this winter.The Carroll Board of Education was not obligated to make up the time, but members voted 3-0 yesterday to use the county's standards rather than the state minimum as the benchmark.By county standards, the schools would have lost 46 hours at the elementary level and 52 hours at the secondary level."That's a lot of lost time, and it's difficult for me to say let's not worry about it," said Superintendent Brian Lockard.

Harford County kindergarten teachers are furious over the school system's new snow policy designed to minimize the amount of time morning kindergarten students miss because of delayed openings.The school system decided this week that morning kindergarten students would be expected to attend school even when the opening is delayed. In the past, morning kindergarten has been canceled when opening was delayed.The policy was implemented because school officials were forced to cancel morning kindergarten for much of January.

If you have visited any mall or shopping center this week, you undoubtedly have seen it: The look of confusion mixed with frustration andexhaustion is unmistakable.The hunt of the back-to-school shopper has begun.Twice in the past week, I've ventured into area malls with my kids to explore the world of fall fashions. Now, as all sane mothers know, shopping with your kids (or your husband) is a dangerous undertaking. Emerging without blowing the budget or your patience is a survival skill learned only under fire.

Listen quietly and you can hear the sound of education personnel around the county muttering to themselves, "15 minutes, 15 minutes, 15 minutes . . ."Yes, Riva Road has decided that our children don't go to school long enough. It seems that school officials need to adjust the schedule by an additional 15 minutes to guarantee our children an education equal to that of other children in the state.Now, I'm sure that this extra 15 minutes will be used by the teaching staff to teach important things: spelling, algebra and assorted life skills.
