Tomorrow off school? Answered

First of all, I know this isn't knex related. Get over it. This is like the most popular section on ibles, and I mainly interact with the people who check here.
Anywho, I was just wondering... Does everyone have the day off from school tomorrow? (Veterans day... 11/11/09)
If so, what will you be doing?

We don't, but I think we have a half day. I don't remember.

Well, that's good. Plus, then it doesn't detract from your total schooldays.
Although that might not be as much of a problem for you as it is for me. I live in Washington, so we have to make up a lot of snow days.

What are you talking about you must live north of me.
The most I've had was like 3 or 4 in one year.

Not by a lot. Last year we had ~7 or 8. I'm not sure exactly. Too many though.

If we had school off for every little holiday we had I'd probably be going to school half way into June. I'd rather take it now than when I could be doing stuff outside this summer.

....Yeah that's 100% true. Last year, we didn't get out 'till the 28th or something like that. But that's also due to snow days. As mentioned above. ^

Nah, I don't have off.  My school will be respecting Veteran's Day though.  On the other hand, we really need a "Make-Peace" day.

Dang. Well, at least you have an assembly or something to take up some time.
I had an assembly today. They did a whole lot of nothing. That fold-a-flag-into-a-football thing took up about 30 min. =P
