This just in to the Daily RFT newsroom, and it's a shocker:

Webster Groves High School officials announced today that due to the number of snow days during the current school year, 30 minutes (yes, 30 long minutes) will be added to the academic year in order to meet state attendance requirements.

"To accomplish this," the school said on its website, "we are adding one additional minute to each school day, particularly 7th period, from May 4-May 28."

That's right, one extra minute. Can it get worse? Yes, it can:

"We will also add an additional two minutes to each final exam on May 29 and June 1-2, making dismissal time 11:09 a.m. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause."
