I would rather work a 1/2 day on a Saturday than use the only little breaks we have in the Spring. We lost Good Friday and Memorial Day already. I think no matter when you schedule it, the day won't really be "made" up. I can't imagine having good attendance whether a Saturday or a holiday. Personally, I don't understand why we have to make them up at all. I know there are a specified number of days required but hardly any kids really attend all 180 days. Missing a few where there was no instruction I don't think really hurts anyone. I know we just adapted our curriculum.
