NORWALK - In many school districts throughout southwestern Connecticut, students have already begun their summer breaks, but some kids are not so lucky.

By law, schools in Connecticut must be out by July 1. In Norwalk and Greenwich, students attending public schools will have classes through June 29 to make up school days that were lost during the nor'easter in March.

If Connecticut schools fail to fulfill their required 180 school days, or 900 school hours, the district loses out on millions of dollars, and students lose out on school credits.
