And I hope that if any emergency services are needed there, their vehicles are equipped with "skeleton keys" - i.e. bolt cutters.

Tough choice, Carolyn, but I honor your priorities. Have a great time, Chad. Maybe coaching skiing is a career. :-)

Scott - my point was that reducing number of days children attend school does not enhance their academic achievement. I'd use Japan and S. Korea as examples, but I don't have the statistics. Not criticizing Hayden or Soroco. Those districts are more than challenged by few students ad little money,

Hayden, as far as I know, has a 4-day school week every other week. If memory serves, their state test scores aren't great. I'm not implying cause-and-effect reasoning, just making an observation. Compared to other "developed" countries our kids spend less time in school and do worse on exams. Again, no A=B reasoning intended. If I were a single parent or part of a two-parent working team I'd be very concerned about how my school-aged children were using their free Friday. Unstructured time is not beneficial to many kids.
