Good Friday as makeup school day?
North Adams Community Schools will not hold classes in observance of Good Friday this year, but in future years the day could be used as a make-up day if another severe winter forces the cancellation of an excessive number of school days.
Members of the North Adams school board expressed varying opinions at last week’s board meeting about Good Friday being a school-observed holiday. Many board members, as well as residents in attendance, were in favor of using the holiday as a make-up day.
Good Friday is not a national holiday and is only observed by governments in 12 states. Indiana recognizes Good Friday, meaning state businesses, banks and offices are closed.
