A Minneapolis-area school district has floated a plan to cut Monday classes to save on fuel prices.

The MACCRAY School District, which serves the towns of Maynard, Clara City and Raymond, says the move could save $65,000 in fuel costs. The remaining four days will be extended by a little more than an hour to make up for the lost Monday.

Advice: If this trend spreads, get ready for parents in your workforce to request four-day weeks as well. Draw up contingency plans now.
