Snow Days and Make Up Time

We were recently out of school for nine days which brings our total to eleven days. Of course the question is how can we make up those lost days? It really does not make sense to tack on the days at the end of the year, I mean testing is over and I and the students just want to go home. Okay, so what makes the most sense--increase the instructional day. But please make it worth the teacher's and the student's time. Thitry minutes is not enough time to really teach anything. Let's have at least forty-five minutes, and I'd really like an hour.
