Schools Closing for ‘International Women’s Day’ or ‘A Day Without Women’

Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) announced Monday that all schools will be closed on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 due to the observance of ‘International Women’s Day’ or ‘A Day Without Women’.

There is a large strike planned for March 8 and 300 ACPS staff members have requested Wednesday off to coincide with this, so ACPS decided to close for the day. The day will be a “teacher work day for ACPS staff” even though teachers are taking the day off.

On this 105th anniversary of International Women’s Day, I am reminded of something Dame Margaret Thatcher once said:

“If you want something said, ask a man…if you want something done, ask a woman.”

Whether we men like to admit it or not, women make this world go round. All of us, no matter how big or small, whether male or female – we all owe our lives to a woman. While Mother’s Day may not be till May, be sure to thank the women in your life today for making the sacrifices they do.

Thank you to all of our readers who are women!
