The banks and Post Offices will be closed, but your children will be in school. Monday, January 21st, is Martin Luther King Day, but it isn't listed on the Lubbock ISD calendar as a student holiday.
Last year, the state mandated that all Texas schools had to start on August 27th. LISD Public Information Officer Nancy Sharp says that meant some holidays had to be sacrified.
Sharp says, "So things that have typically been holidays, some of the extra days at Thanksgiving and such had to be removed from the calendar in order to get our required number of days in."
Cooper and Frenship ISDs are also holding class on that day. The MLK holiday will be back on next year's school calendar.
