After Tropical Storm Irma knocked out power and forced schools to close for four days, DeKalb students will make up the days in two ways.

The school day will be extended by 20 minutes during the month October. Students will also attend school on Election Day, Nov. 7, while two other make-up days have not been determined yet.
