You might hit some commuting brake lights today, but the buses won't be on most area roads.
Many kids are on Spring Break through this week after school systems cut holidays and teacher work days to make up for missed snow days instead. Even though some are going to class for longer days, the majority graduate and finish school by mid-June.
If your child is off, make sure you know what they're up to, especially on-line. Child safety investigators are still making busts of adults posing as other kids on chat sites and social media. Lots of software, like one through McAfee, let you monitor activity and will even send alerts, but none of it replaces honest communication.
