CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU)-- Summer will be shorter for students in the Chippewa Falls School District.

The district had seven snow days this past winter, and has to make up five. Superintendent, Brad Saron, says they looked into making the school days longer, but that's not feasible.

Now, instead of June 6th being the last day, students will be going to school June 9th through June 13th, with the 13th being a half day.
Saron says any additional snow days in late April or early May will also have to be made up. For the 2015-2016 year, the district is looking at possible modifications to the district calendar and school bell schedules.

In Eau Claire, two days have to be made up. The last day of school was supposed to be June 10th, but now, it's June 12th.
