GREEN BAY, WI (AP) - A Green Bay high school damaged by fire will extend each class day by 18 minutes this school year to make up for starting almost two weeks late.

Preble High School officials announced the plan Tuesday.

About two minutes will be added to each class period and students will be in school from 7:30 a.m. until 3:18 p.m.

The start date for classes was moved to September 15th from September 2nd after a fire damaged the school's gym earlier this month.

Investigators say district employees didn't properly dispose of rags they were using to resurface the gym's floor.

Preble students will attend school on October 31st, when other Green Bay students have off.

They will have full days on some dates when other schools have half days.
