The snowy and cold weather events have school districts scrambling to figure out how to make up for lost time. That usually means either adding days onto the end of the year or making designated days off school days. But other options are also being considered, especially the concept of virtual learning days. At University School of Milwaukee in River Hills, virtual learning has been a reality for almost five years. The idea came about after weather-related school closings in the 2013-14 school year caused USM to extend its winter break by three days. Teachers and administrators wanted a way to continue teaching and keeping students engaged during unplanned off days.
