Gov. Christie says NJ's many snow days will be made up

TRENTON - (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says the state's schoolchildren will have to make up the snow days they've missed in this unusually harsh winter.
    
On his radio call-in show Wednesday evening on TownSqure Media, Christie said his three school-age kids have lobbied him to waive the requirement so they won't have to make up days this spring or summer.
    
He told a caller, "There's a 180 days school requirement and I'm not waiving it."
    
Many districts across the state have had five or more snow days so far this school year. Some shortened a recent winter break. Some are shortening spring break or extending the end of the school year.
