Figure This Out

Son hops off the bus yesterday and informs me that there is no school on Friday.

"You're fibbing," says I.

"No! Really! There's a note in my backpack and the principal said there was no school on Friday!" Son vehemently replied.

So I take all the papers and so forth out of said backpack and lo and behold the district will be closed on Friday.

Why, you ask?

The baseball team is going to play some championship game in Columbus, and apparently the superintendent thinks so many people are going to go that no one will be around to teach.

Now, I'm as much of an athletic supporter (!!!) as the next person, but the only way I'd travel 2 1/2 hours to Columbus is to watch the Buckeyes.

So now I'm a little perplexed because Friday June 1 was supposed to be the last day of school, but because of school closings back in January and February, the kids have to go until June 5.

The kicker here is that the superintendent could have filed some kind of paperwork with the state to exempt two of those snow makeup days because the entire county was shut down due to icy roads. But she didn't.

Everyone pisses and moans about how bad our schools are, how bad this district is, blahblahblah, and then they close the works down for baseball?

I can't fight the school board, I guess.

Go wildcats!
