Tuesday – After School Program Extends Hours
A big teachers rally scheduled this Tuesday, November 19, at the Indiana State Capital has prompted many schools, including Lafayette School Corporation and Tippecanoe School Corporation schools, to close for the day. In support of local teachers, the LUM After School Program will provide childcare for the entire day on Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
School officials say so many teachers requested personal time off for the rally that they wouldn’t be able to find enough substitute teachers to cover classrooms. It is being reported that at least 4,000 teachers have registered for the rally.
