Inching closer to warmer days, Kansans will spring forward as Daylight saving time goes into effect March 10. Clocks will move forward one hour, causing an hour less of sleep that night. Recently, states have pushed for legislation to eliminate Daylight saving time. In January, Rep. Kristey Williams (R-Augusta) introduced House Bill 2008 to remove Daylight saving time in Kansas. If enacted, the change will go into effect this year in November.
Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, do not recognize Daylight saving time.
In addition, the first day of spring is March 20. USD 298 and USD 240 schools will have spring break March 11-15. USD 299 schools do not observe a spring break.
