Cincinnati Public Schools amends school calendar to include Super Bowl Monday as day off!
WAY TO GO CINCY!!!
Cincinnati Public Schools has given a gift to its students and staffers as the Cincinnati Bengals are headed to the Super Bowl for the first time in more than three decades, announcing Monday (January 31st) that it had amended the calendar to make Monday, February 14th, the day after the Super Bowl, a day off.
So kids will be able to stay up late without worrying about having to get up for school, and staffers won't have to drag themselves into work after a night spent either celebrating a win or drowning their sorrows after a loss to the L.A. Rams.
A letter sent to parents by the city's largest school district cited "celebrating" the Bengals' first Super Bowl win as the reason the change was made, but whether it will be a celebration or not remains to be seen.
In the two previous times Cincinnati reached the Super Bowl, in 1982 and 1989, it lost both times.
