Wake County high school students will take some final exams next week, since classes are canceled Wednesday because of snow.

Final exams will be extended by one day, meaning some students will take the tests Monday, according to information Wake sent to school principals.

The Triangle is expected to get 4 to 6 inches of snow Wednesday, so the exam schedule could be extended further if schools are canceled Thursday.

Wake County students often plead with school leaders on Twitter to cancel classes when there’s even a slight chance of snow. But this week, some high school students said they wanted schools to stay open so they can finish their final exams.

Temperatures are expected to climb later this week, which would help melt the snow and ice. Students who attend year-round schools are scheduled to make up a previous snow day on Saturday. They will make up Wednesday’s classes Feb. 19.

Students who attend schools on the traditional calendar will make up Wednesday’s snow day on March 29, the first day of spring break for students and their families.
