    This is an atrocious and ridiculous calendar. Obviously they did not think about the impact this would have on thousands of families. What about people who travel at Christmas? Are they supposed to take their child out of school with unexcused absences to travel? What about the workforce that has to go back January 2nd? What are they supposed to do with their children? Who can afford more daycare, especially in our Title 1 School? Did anyone on the decision making board listen to the public? This is clearly catering to an extreme minority instead of the well-being and interests of the entire district population.
