Championship Celebrations Cause Concerns About Classroom Absences

/

By The Bedford Scallion

Schools are concerned about missing so much time due to championship pep rallies/parades.

The Bedford Public schools are feeling the effect of yet another championship rally.  Although everyone would agree sports victories are fun, there must be some kind of discussion as to what to do with all the celebrating students.

This is the second parade this year, and the 12th since the year 2001.   With the Celtics and Bruins looking good, no one is sure this is the last one.

All the absences have officials concerned. With kids wanting to celebrate championships it’s starting to take its toll.  This is beginning to be an annual problem. Should the schools add two days to the year to accommodate?

School officials have reached out to other school systems across the country to see how to integrate championship parades and pep rallies in the school calendar year.

Most of the other schools we reached out were confused by the question. The New York schools seemed particularly testy. Cleveland is the only city that has a permanent plan in place to deal with championships. When we reached out to the Cleveland officials to see how their plan worked, they just hung up.
