Fair Day is back!One week after removing Fair Day as a holiday in the 2011-2012 school calendar, the Warren County Board of Education voted to restore the Friday of the fair as a day without school.The move came Thursday morning at a specially called 7:30 a.m. meeting.“”If we had known the reaction this would have caused, we wouldn’t have done it,” said School Board member Bill Zechman.The School Board made two other changes to the calendar.The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is now a day off from school. To compensate for the two day extra days off, two days were removed from fall break. Oct. 17-18 are now official school days.For a complete 2011-12 school calendar, see Friday’s edition of the Standard.
