There will be more time in school to make up lost time for hurricanes. Here’s when.

Broward students will stay in school a bit longer for more classroom time to make up for closures during two recent hurricanes.

Jan. 12 and April 20, both previously scheduled to be half days for students, will now become regular school days.

Hurricane Ian smashed into Florida west of Fort Myers as a Category 4 storm on Sept. 28, causing tornadoes in Broward County and flooding streets in Key West. Hurricane Nicole made landfall as a Category 1 storm on the Treasure Coast on Nov. 10, collapsing homes into the ocean in Daytona Beach Shores.

In advance of both storms, citing storm unpredictability and the possibility of flooding, Broward schools closed for two days each.

In Palm Beach County, where students attended class on Veterans Day, no make-up time is needed.
