"O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!" -- HISD Won't Make Up Missed Days
It looks like HISD students will not have to make up the days missed by Ike.
The school board unanimously agreed to ask the state to waive all the missed days; the state education commissioner has already announced he's fine with waiving up to 10 days.
That will cover almost all HISD schools, spokeswoman Rebecca Suarez tells Hair Balls. Most HISD schools missed seven days, although a few missed 11.
"We think we will get a waiver for those schools with 11 days, too," she says.

Schools are being asked to adjust their schedules to add more instruction time, she says, like foregoing homeroom classes in favor of academic instruction.
Still, there are some happy HISD kids today. Except the nerds!!!
