To have or not to

To have school open or not was a tough question many roshei mosdos of girls schools faced this week since the schools opted not to have busing on Friday. Car pooling in a short Friday with one dismissal time is not logistically easy in some schools. In the end some schools were off most of the girls schools were open some sent messages understanding if parents can not send their daughters.One particular school asked a noted Rosh Yeshiva his reply you must be open absolutely no matter the consequences we can not send a message of giving off on Yom Aidum.There is a Teshuva from Rav Moshe Feinstein about not making simchas on that day.

  1. I heard that Rav Meir Stern told 3 girls schools who are his Talmidim to have school but it doesn't have to be mandatory for them to come!

    It is two different Teshuvos. The Teshuva saying schools must be opened Dec 25th is YD 3:85. The teshuva about making Simchos is elsewhere and not as unequivocal or as universally followed as the first.
