See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I got a call yesterday from the school board. They were calling to inform parents that because the high school girls basketball team had made it to state playoffs school would be closed Friday so that all the teachers and students that wanted to go to Richmond could go.
Our county is small. They are very sports oriented. I am glad that the girls get the support that they get. Maybe it's because I am not a sports person, I have a hard time thinking that it is ok for the entire school system to shut down because of a basketball game. I am not going to flip out and all that kind of crazy stuff but I have trouble seeing how a ball game is more important than school. But it is only one game and I will not protest. It's not a huge deal it just seems strange to me.
