Franklin Township School mulls Saturday classes

FRANKLIN - After using so many snow days this winter, one Hunterdon County school district may hold classes on Saturday to make up for lost time.

A septic pipe issue already delayed the start of the 2010-11 school year at the Franklin Township School.

School officials there have already pushed the last day of class to the latest allowed under state rules, and have used up twice the amount of allotted snow days.

At a meeting earlier this week, school board members discussed the idea of Saturday classes. They agreed Saturday classes would be a last resort to meet the state-required 180 days of school.
