MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — A longer school day awaits Minneapolis students as they return from Spring Break.

Starting Monday, 42 minutes are being added to the school day to make up for lost time in the classroom when teachers were on strike.

That will make up five days of the 15 days of learning lost when teachers and support professional went on strike March 8 idling some 29,000 students and about 4,500 educators and staff in one of Minnesota’s largest school districts.

The additional 10 days will be added to the end of the school year, extending it until June 24.
