Wichita public school students will enjoy a four-day weekend, but administrators say it's not due to the inauguration of Barack Obama.
USD 259 will be closed Monday for Martin Luther King day. Schools will also be closed Tuesday for an in-service day.
The teachers' contract calls for a certain number of in-service days. The USD 259 calendar committee tries to schedule those days so they are close to holidays. A USD 259 spokesperson said the schedule was set months ago, and it's just a coincidence the in-service day falls on the same day of Barack Obama's inauguration.
