School day on MLK Day
I'm disappointed that we don't have school today but we do on MLK Day, especially since originally we were not scheduled to. Couldn't have we switched and had school today and not on Monday? I would like our children to know that this day is important to our nation and our schools respect this day and the man we are celebrating and what he stood for.

RE:School day on MLK Day
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an important day. Our students will and have learned about this important holiday and what Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for. We appreciate your comment, and next year we will not make this our first make-up day. Thank you.
