    Public school students in Prince George's County, Maryland, could have just one day of spring break thanks to the snow days the school system used. 

    Spring break was scheduled for April 3 thorugh April 6, but school officials say students will have to go back to class April 5 to make up the days they lost to bad weather. The school board will vote Thursday on whether to shorten the break even more and require students to return April 4. 

    Schools will be closed March 30 and April 2 for the Easter holiday, according to the school system's calendar.

    Prince George's County Public Schools lost six days this school year for bad weather, including Jan. 4, 5 and 17 and March 2, 21 and 22. The school calendar only plans for five bad weather makeup days and the school year must end by June 15, the school system said in a statement.
