The teachers have sent notes home with the kids informing the parents that the teachers are participitating in the strike on Thursday, Sept. 23.
Strike? Advance notice of a strike? Hmmm.
I was wondering if that meant that school was open.
On the way home from school Joey was all excited to tell me that there would be a strike on Thursday and he could go to school only if he wanted. Yeah, just tell a kid that school is optional.
Gabi had some questions. If she went to school, did that mean she wasn't supporting the strike? But then the people who were supporting the strike wouldn't be there, so they wouldn't know. She had a lot of things to think about.
I found out from Ellie's teacher that the school is open but it isn't a normal school day. It is just open for parents who work and need their kids watched. (At least I think that is what she told me!)
Anyone think that I can convince the kids to go to school on Thursday?
Nah, me either.
The elementary school kids already have Wednesday off. Every single Wednesday.
