Spring Break Offered to All Loudoun School Staff

School Board on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution extending Spring Break, the week of March 29-April 2, as a holiday for all staff members.

The action was proposed by as a recognition of the efforts by building administrators, support staffers, and other 12-month employees during the past year as they were called to extra duties in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Interim Superintendent Scott Ziegler told the School Board the action would have no cost impacts as the salaries already are accounted for.

    Why? What extra duties? They did different duties not extra duties.

    This is beyond ridiculous. When there is no concrete plan to return kids to school, who gives 5 additional holidays to their entire workforce? Are the admins jealous of how many days off the lazy teachers get?

    Is this a preview of how “management” will deal with an organized work force?

    The process is called bargaining. WHAT DID THE LCPS STAFF SPECIFICALLY GIVE UP IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THIS BENEFIT?

    And don’t throw out some amorphous “extra duties” BS. Taxpayers deserve quantifiable and measurable metrics.

    Clearly, we need a new group of teachers who are willing to teach. We need a new LCPS administration will to keep the teachers in line and going their jobs. And we need a SB that is willing and able to advise and control the school system.

    Time for a restart.
