This has no effect on our family, it's fine.

April 22nd is Good Friday. Not sure if people already had plans for Easter and to go out of town. We'll see tomorrow if the graduation changes will affect people.

I was disappointed that Spring Break was not scheduled at Easter with that in mind GCPS should have taken a day off spring break and left Good Friday alone. This is a holy day, the Lord died for our sins. Christians we need to stand up and let our voice be heard. I don't recall MLK day being used for a snow make up day.
