I got Vanguard Views (newsletter from the school where my mother used to work) recently, and they had a lot of hurricane damage. They were hit by Charley (category 3), Frances (category 1), and Jeanne (category 2), and lost trees and roofs . The clean-up forced them to postpone opening the school from September 7 to October 4; and, of course, they had to make up the time somehow. They decided to add an eighth period, and that has worked out well. Students even requested that it be continued for electives!
