Veteran's day is a tuesday.
I made my schedule a year ago and passed it out in January. I scheduled monday off and tuesday open. I thought it would be weird to close on a tuesday.

Is this weird? What days are you closed?? Do most parents have Tuesday off and work Monday?

I don't close for Veterans Day, bit if you passed out your calendar in January and the Parents didn't say anything, then you should be good!

I do not close since it is not a holiday for my dh.

I close on the day of, in honor of my DH who is a veteran. We typically attend a luncheon, ceremony or parade together as he is often asked to participate locally.

I don't think I could pull off the Monday closure, then open the day of, as it defeats the purpose.

If they had a year notice, I would expect a few rumblings about having to pay for a "non-national holiday" closure.... You know how to shut that down, though...

Veterans Day isn't a closed holiday for me either.

Schools are in session as well.

If you gave them notice, then it's on them. Here our schools are also closed. I am closed on the actual holiday but I also have all school employees.

I feel dumb for closing Monday instead of the day of haha.

My parents don't mind at all when I take days off. All but one have family that watch their kids if I close and the other family takes the days off no problem.

Schools are closed on Tuesday here.

I goofed when I made my schedule and didn't realize it until recently.

In the handbook I list the holidays I am closed, and included Veteran's day this year (in past years I stayed open, but always for only one child, so I decided to close this year). In addition to listing the holidays in the handbook I also make a schedule that I give to parents that is separate, so they can hang it by their calendar. Well I forgot to add veteran's day to that schedule. No one has mentioned it. So I plan to stay open and if no one comes then I'll have a day off
