Actually, speaking as a now retired teacher, it makes sense. The kids, if they even show up, will be absolutely nuts. The day will be made up later.

I don’t have a problem with this either, the less traffic before a huge holiday, the better.

Give them the whole month off!

On list of things I'd like to kick, a door ranks pretty low.
