Columbus vs Yom Kippur
Original post made by HypocrisyHater, Fairmeadow School, on Oct 9, 2006
It is strange how the Palo Alto School District does not recognize Columbus Day, which is a holiday observed by government offices across America including Palo Alto's own. It is stranger that year after year Yom Kippur is observed with a district-wide holiday, without calling it as such but just "Local Holiday." By design, the day after Yom Kippur is also another day off district-wide, calling it a "Staff Development Day."
