Students at Clarksville-Montgomery County schools have their seventh day off due to residual weather conditions that have a few roads still impassable for school buses. CMCSS employees were expected to report to work.

Despite a day of melting yesterday, a number of streets remain impassable due to snow banks that have not yet melted. That affects several hundred students and an addition 25 who require door to door service due to disabilities. Persistent sub-freezing temperatures have limited the melting time for snow and ice.

The school system has a built-in plan to cover the first five snow days. CMCSS will have to determine how and how many snow days will be made up. The possibilities include:

* Convert an early release date into a full day of school on April 10 with 30 minutes a day added to eight school days
* Add 30 minutes a day to eight regular days to make up one school day
