Students at United Township High School will no longer get to stay home on Veterans Day. Yesterday, the Board of Education decided next fall, students will learn about the holiday at school. Superintendent Jay Morrow says November 11th will now be a regular school day. But, the district is working with the East Moline American Legion, and others, to present a ceremony for students.
Morrow says the Illinois school code requires recognition of Veterans Day. Next fall, United Township High School students will instead have November 25th off, instead of the 11th.
