Seriously though, why start school on Jan. 2? That is ridiculous.

Why is that ridiculous? What holiday am I missing that falls on January 2nd? Is it because New Year's was the day before, and if so, what is the acceptable buffer period surrounding a holiday? And if there is a buffer period, why don't you also complain about the lack of acceptable buffer around the 4th of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, etc.?

Kids already get plenty of days off school - so many that they end up starting school in August and ending in June. They don't need more days off during the year.

Point well taken Robin but families don't usually travel far distances to go visit relatives for Labor Day or Memorial Day. I'm guessing that the absentee rate was extremely high for Jan. 2nd.
