What to do?

Later this week, Forsyth County Schools are out of class for a day and a half.  It’s an Early Release Day on Friday, March 16th followed by an Inclement Weather Day on Monday, March 19th.  Since it’s combined into a long weekend, some of you may be headed out of town.  But if you’ll be sticking around Forsyth County, here’s a few ideas to keep everyone having a good time.

Play Outside

If it’s not raining, definitely try to catch some good Vitamin D over the break.  Play at a local playground, ride on the Greenway, or maybe even hike Sawnee Mountain.
