Knox County’s winter break

What genius at Knox County schools decided that parents and students would rather have the week after New Year’s Day off than the week before Christmas? Travel, parties and preparations all occur before Christmas. Once January 1st is here, there are no parties, no family gatherings and adults have to return to working. Students in private schools and counties around us are all out by Wednesday. Sarah wants me to check her out of school for a friend’s birthday party on Thursday. “But Mu-ther, we aren’t doing any work this week anyway.” Bad planning Knox County schools.

  1. Missus and I are relieved that our kids are in school this week instead of at home whining every waking moment to get their presents early… Plus it’s a lot easier to make holiday preparations while not having bored offspring bugging you every two seconds.
