one of the districts in our conference is close to closing and kids having
to travel extra distance to another. They went to a four day plan, but only
during the expensive winter heating season. Cuts out buses for the day,
heating the buildings ('cept the gym on game nights), lights, custodial,
lunch name it. Personally, as much time as I spend at the
school...that would be a cinch for me, and having potentially one extra day
to recoup wouldn't be such an unwelcome proposition. I hope we go to it.

I heard that while some would say it gives kids one more day to spend at
home on homework, in reality it gives employers another day to expect that
kids can work. In the northwoods, it would mean another day to play, ride
snowmobiles, etc;
