No school because of the election?

I found out this afternoon after the kids got out of school that there is no school tomorrow. Most of the schools in our county are polling places, so for the convenience of the adults, the kids all get the day off. I guess this is such an ingrained thing here that nobody thought it was necessary to notify parents. It's a good thing I'm a stay at home Mom....otherwise, I'd be hunting for last minute childcare.

It's more likely for the safety of the kids. You don't have to have an up-to-date background check on things that you didn't go to jail for in order to vote. I know this was a huge issue here with continuing to use schools as polling places. So now schools are no longer polls.
