We don't do this at my schools, but my friend does it at theirs. I
think it goes something like every four days they rotate. A, B, C and D
day, so if the children miss Monday and it is an "A" day because of a
holiday, then when they do get back to school, it might be a Wednesday,
but they start with the "A" group. The days are set up the same for
music, art, gym and library, all grade levels at the same time everyday.
Hope this is understandable and not clear as mud.
