(CNN Student News) -- February 9, 2011

Welcome to the CNN Teachers' Lounge, the place where teachers can sound off on issues in education and how to best address them. Each week, we'll post a question and ask for your views. You can respond in the "Soundoff" section below.

To paraphrase George Harrison, for many school districts in the U.S., it's already been a long, cold, lonely winter. Some districts are experiencing a record number of snow days. We'd like to know how your district deals with days it cancels due to inclement weather. Does it add the days to the end of the school year, forfeit breaks, extend existing school days by an hour or two, or make up these days another way? What are your ideas for making up school days lost to bad weather?
