Many school districts in Connecticut are using today to offer staff development programs for teachers - and having students stay at home - as some schools are used as polling places for the election.
Because Friday is Veterans' Day, a national holiday with no school, that means for many students a three-day "work" week, and for many parents a day-care nightmare.
What do you think? Should schools be used as polling places for election? And if so, is it safe to still have students in class that day? Take our poll and add your thoughts in the comments.
