The Rapid City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1aHtqsn) that the extension means the academic year for Rapid City students will stretch beyond Memorial Day, to Wednesday, May 28. Teachers will work one more day after that.

The storm dumped nearly 2 feet of snow in the city, damaging schools and leading to impassable bus routes and power outages.
