More Schools Will Remain Open On Good Friday
A trend is forming that is keeping more and more public schools open on Good Friday.
Old Rochester Regional Public Schools has decided for the first time to open schools this Good Friday.
Meanwhile, across the Rhode Island border, a problem is developing in Cranston, where over 200 teachers and 40 assistants in Cranston are requesting Good Friday off. The Superintendent is thinking of canceling school. The superintendent says a decision won't be made until Friday after a court ruling last week determined that Cranston, RI teachers can take Good Friday off, as long as they submit an approval by midnight tonight.
The superintendent said if too many teachers request the day off, she will cancel school. Here's the catch - according to WJAR, the annoucment reportedly won't be made until Friday morning, right before the kids are due in school.
Fun 107 has not yet heard of any reports of massive teacher requests for the day off in Old Rochester.
