I am sitting in my office plowing through a days work while fasting, and my wife emails me to inform me that there is no school tomorrow for the Girls. Now, I understand why there is a half a day today and that would be because most years Purim starts right after the Taanis, although they really should have scheduled a full day today too.
Why in the world is there no School tomorrow? Even if it is a hardship for teachers and school staff to prepare shabbos and purim, they have the whole day today and a late shabbos tomorrow for that, and besides, they knew Purim was coming for weeks.
Besides this, for every one teacher (and maybe assistant) that has to work harder to prepare, there are 40 mothers and fathers in each class that have to rearrange everything. I just can’t wrap my head around it. It seems every other week my kids are off of school for another reason that makes no sense.
Can someone please respond if there is a valid reason for this? There are a couple of girls schools that are on for tomorrow but the majority are off. What Gives?
