Confusion over end of year angers some MCS parents

Memphis City School students are just weeks away from the summer vacation. But tonight, some parents are just now finding out, school's not out as soon as they thought.

The original end-of-the-year date for Memphis kids was Friday, May 25th.

But, thanks to wintry weather this year, the start of summer vacation won't come until May 29th.

That's the Tuesday after Memorial Day, a make-up snow day.

Parents were sent a letter back on May second warning them about the extended school year and a phone blitz over the weekend served as a reminder about the extra make-up day.

But some parents we talked with say, they're furious about the extension and the way it's cutting into their vacation plans.
