We've heard of snow days, vacation days, teacher workshop days, all kinds of reasons for kids to miss school. This is the first time I've heard of a U2 Day!
Kids at the Orchard Park Central School District near Buffalo, NY, will miss their upcoming first day of the 2017 / 2018 school year because of the U2 show. School officials think that the U2 show on September 5th will bring so much traffic to the area that they moved the first day of school to September 6th.
Lucky kids! You should all get together and sing a U2 song to thank them for an extra day off!
