Warren County students can sleep in Sept. 21 as the School Board voted Thursday night to call off school for homecoming day.The decision will give students two consecutive Fridays off given their regular day off for the fair Sept. 14. The School Board opted to make homecoming a day off so teachers could have a developmental day to meet and discuss progress with the new Common Core curriculum. For students it means no classes, leaving their day clear all the way up to the homecoming game Friday night when the Pioneers face Moore County at Nunley Stadium.“There are a lot of sign-outs that day anyway,” said School Board member Jeff Lee, pointing out many students leave early from school for the parade.
