If the streets of Forsyth County seem less crowded this week, it’s likely because school is out for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Schools will be closed Monday through Friday, with classes resuming Nov. 29.
The weeklong vacation was a request from parents, many of whom planned to travel out of town.
Officials have said the lengthy break is also a factor in why school starts in early August.
The next school vacation is scheduled for Dec. 20-Jan. 3.
