Does your school district give the day off for Martin Luther King day?

Asked by JLeslie (47630 points ) February 24th, 2014

Maybe they all do now? If your school district doesn’t I would like to know where you live. We were talking about MLK day on another Q and it had me wondering which schools and businesses give the day off.

Yes our school district is closed on MLK day. I can’t recall any businesses where I live being closed though.

Yes, it is a Federal and State holiday. And financial institutions are closed, too.

Yes, our schools were closed. Most banks are closed, though those that are in grocery stores are often open. Transactions post on the next business day because of the Federal holiday.

Yes, our schools are closed for MLK day.

A couple years ago, I passed my daughter’s school. I briefly saw the MLK day notice flash across the sign. I was thinking to myself, what is milk day? I was half a mile down the road before it clicked. Duh! Later that day, I started to tell my husband about my brain relapse. I just got through MLK day, and he asked, what’s milk day? Stupidity is contagious in our house.

It’s a federal holiday. Are there any public school districts that choose to remain open and break the law?

@gailcalled I don’t think schools have to take federal holidays. I was on another Q about MLK day talking about states making the day a state holiday. I think it was already a federal holiday at that point. I don’t think all schools take Columbus Day. Do they? I don’t know the answer, I am interested in knowing the answer.

Our firm closes on MLK day, as do all of the school districts in the state.
