How hypocritical is this? You cannot prat in school or at school events, yet they can observe "GOOD FRIDAY"???
What a crock of manuer that is!!

And then they expect my child to make up a bad weather day on Memorial Day???

All I can say is the YISD is STUPID if they think my child will give up a day of observance for our military as opposed to good freakin friday!!!

I Agree 100% but not to worry, the YISD will be getting Memorial Day off. They submitted a request to TEA and we got the day back. Enjoy!
