Forsyth County Schools are closed for 3 days beginning this Friday (and assuming our Inclement Weather day sticks around between now & then). When you add the weekends in, we end up having 5 full days off!
I must admit, I’m pretty excited to NOT be setting the alarm for five days straight!
It looks like it will be pretty chilly most of the break, but then again who knows. We had a picnic several weeks back so it’s certainly possible. But in the event it’s too cold to hit a playground or ride bikes on the driveway, we’ve rounded of a list of some Indoor Fun to keep YOU warm & the KIDS entertained!
