Some students learn lessons from Cubs, but not at school – Chicago Tribune

Parents may have to choose between history class and celebrating history Friday, with the parade and rally commemorating the Chicago CubsWorld Series win conflicting with school in many suburban districts.

If Thursday’s tardy turnout at area schools is any indication, Cubs-rooting students and parents may have a second day of festivities getting in the way. Several schools Thursday reported a higher than usual amount of students either late or absent, with parents blaming a late night watching the team clinch the World Series title.

Richard Aquino, of Libertyville, said he was considering bringing his 7-year-old son, Bennett, to the Cubs celebration instead of school, if he wants to go. That’s after he dropped his son off at school an hour and 15 minutes late Thursday morning after letting him stay up late watching the game.

“For him, it’ll boil down to what they’re serving for lunch at school tomorrow,” Aquino said.
