My kids have school on Memorial yours?

They have a make up day for snow days. So today is our Memorial day basically. Are your kids in school Monday?

  • No, that's weird- you'd think they'd just add an extra day on to the end of the year
    Actually, budget wise, it makes sense. There are a lot of school staff that get paid for the holiday. If they add days to the end of the year the staff get a day or two (or this year five or six) extra days. With the budget crunches that schools are seeing this year they are trying to save money anyway they can.
    The school where I work usually does not do snow make up days. We usually just tack those days on at the end of the year, but for the above reason, we actually had snow make up days this year. We lost some of our Spring Break as well as two inservice days so we did not have to go tomorrow.

  • No, our school is always done the Friday before, no matter what - they build in a bunch of snow days to guarantee we'll be done. Even the year we had a lot of snow days we didn't have to go back after.

  • Our public schools are out for the summer - Friday was their last day. Somehow they were supposed to make up nearly 3 weeks of snow days and they only put in 4 days. I don't know how that works, but as as a homeschooler I know we are not afforded those liberties. Doesn't matter to me anyway, we do school year round (4 day weeks) because that helps reduce what my grandma used to call the "summer stupids" where kids just forget everything over the summer months.
