Very few people showed up at the meeting, because very few parents know this change is coming. There has been very little notification, except a few emails. Even the email yesterday from the district, not once said "modified" calendar...it is very sneaky & hush hush the way they have been approaching it.
Parents, is this really good for your children? Or is this just more convenient for you? Are you one of those parents that really values your time with your kids, or do you avoid them & plug them into their electronic babysitters?
I am ok with the change, as long as there is ample notitfication & if most parents know about it, but I dont count 3 emails with wishy washy words as ample notification.

Good god, I don't care at all. Find something important to care about. You have too much time on your hands.

The reason why very few people showed up at the meeting is because they don't care that much and it's not really a big deal. Schedules change, we have random teacher work days off, sometimes the year starts at different times, depending on the calendar, we have had staggered reading sprung on us. One week, the modified lite, which is what they are truly considering, is not that much of a change. People adapt, childcare providers adapt, it's just one week. People generally favor it, or don't care much one way or another. It seems like there is generally one person ranting on this board. Go outside and get some fresh air, it will be good for you. This is small stuff.
