Girls schools may be closed Friday

With no busing on Friday due to the holiday some girl schools are weighing the option of not opening.  Having parents schlepp back and forth with a short day schedule may just be too much. One option is to have school finish later since they are not beholden to the bus schedule.

  1. Yes Bnos Yaakov is always first to cancel school which they have on friday.

  2. Are they really considering it or is this just talk? Even some of the Hillel school system schools follows Rav Moshe's psak not to close schools on December 25th so as not to look like being "Sameich B'Yom Aidum". In those schools it is from the few days parents are home and able to spend time with their children.

    Is traffic alone a reason not to follow that psak?Or do the Lakewood poskim disagree?
