School districts are making plans for students to make up the snow days missed after this week's storm. Some Wake County students will have to attend on Saturday.

Wake County students on year-round schedules will have class on two Saturdays, including this weekend, to make up the two days missed. They'll make up Tuesday on Saturday, Jan. 24, and Wednesday's day off on Saturday, April 4.

Only students at North Garner Middle School won't be required to attend class on Saturday. Heating issues mean that school will remain closed. Those students will make up the first snow day on Saturday, April 18.

Wake students on a traditional schedule will have make-up days on two Mondays when they were to have been off – Feb. 16 and April 6.

Students on modified schedules will make up the days on March 9 and 10 (a Monday and Tuesday). Wake Early College students will make up the days Thursday, April 9, and on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26.

In Durham County, public school students on a traditional calendar only have one day to make up. Tuesday was a scheduled holiday for students, so the snow did not cancel any scheduled classes. They will make up Wednesday's snow day on Monday, Feb. 16.

Students in year-round schools in Durham will make up two snow days on Monday, March 30, and Friday, June 5.

Carrboro-Chapel Hill students were also on holiday Tuesday. They will make up Wednesday on Friday, Feb. 27.

Cumberland County Schools announced their make-up days Friday. All schools will make up the first snow day on Monday, Feb. 16. Dismissal will be two hours early that day.

Traditional-calendar schools will make up the second day on Friday, April 10; year-round schools will make up the day April 17; students at Cross Creek Early College High, Howard Health & Life Sciences High and Fuller Performance Learning Center will make up the day April 13. In each case, dismissal will be two hours early.
