School district owes apology about Memorial Day observance

I was shocked and dismayed to read that the Lancaster School District did not close in observance of Memorial Day. Does the school district not have history books in the schools? Do school board officials not know of the supreme sacrifice so many brave Americans have made to defend our freedoms? Do they not care about the loss so many millions of American family members endured so we all can enjoy life, liberty and pursuit of happiness?

What is the school district teaching our children by its callous attitude toward our fallen heroes?

As a veteran I am insulted, as an American I am outraged by the school board's unpatriotic and uncaring position.

The school district owes every American, and in particular, every family who lost a loved one serving our country, a huge apology.
