So ... Christmas was coming and the kids were STILL in school, much to their dismay! While other school districts had the entire week before Christmas off, and others got off at least by mid-week, this was not true for our kids. Now as a parent, I didn't really mind. It gave me a few extra days for shopping and wrapping presents without the kids underfoot. But the kids ... they were NOT happy about it. I don't have Twitter, but apparently there was such a fuss made there that it made the local news! The kids were posting that NO OTHER SCHOOLS in the United States were in school Dec 22 and 23. It will be remembered as the year the Jordan School District stole Christmas!
