    Growing up our school always got out a week for rifle season and they still do. Now the school I'm working at (which is just as rural and hunting centered) does not get anything off for season. I have always joked about it but today sat down with my boss and had a serious talk. He agreed, it's our culture, family bonding, etc... and that he does not see why we should not at least have one day off.

    I am needing to do a bit of research before I put my proposal together for the head hancho's and was wondering if any of the schools in your area get off any for deer season. Please tell me the district name and how many days. Your support just might help the youth in my district :claphands:

    When I was in school in Indiana, that was a couple years ago. But we were a rural farming community. They always gave us 2 personal days a year to take when we needed to. Most of us were using them when planting or harvest season was upon us! That might be ab option too.

    Salem never did,, at least back when I was in school.. Bunker does get a couple days still I think.. Emminence used to get a week, but they took it away this week, and the students and parents are throwing a fit!

    relax my friend....I am not talking about me, I have days built up and if I want off I can, i am talking about for the kids not me. We have a number of absences on that monday and their not ashamed to tell you why. I am looking at it as a moral booster for the kids, a little break to do what they enjoy....maybe keep some traditions alive (deer camp, family coming in, etc...). Te me it's an all around positive for our community.

    Time off + low pay = any different than any other job?

    When I lived in Pennsylvania we always got opening day off (always fell on a Monday). I believe they still give the kids off to this day.

    Don't forget that those kids are going to miss anyway. That equals low attendance which affects the amount of money the state gives you. It also puts a lot of pressure back on the kids when they come back and have to make up a few days of work. If you build it in to the calendar it may seem like a day off but the day, attendance $$$, work (for teacher and students) will all be made up.

    BTW i used to work for the new Superintendent at Eminence...how is he doing...honestly
