PULASKI, WI (WTAQ) - Some Wisconsin schools will be open next Monday -- even though it's a government holiday, and many businesses will be closed.
It's also when the major New Year's Day bowl events will take place. And the Pulaski High School marching band will be in the Tournament of Roses Parade next Monday morning in Pasadena, while their classmates are in school.
Superintendent Mel Lightner said the calendar was set a number of years ago. And while it's a great honor for the Pulaski band to be in the Rose Parade, he said they won't call off school because of it.
He says many parents will most likely work -- and they could have problems getting child care if school's called off. Lightner says teachers might show the parade to their classes on TV, but it will be up to them.
Green Bay schools are also open next Monday. But at least they should be done by the time the Wisconsin football team plays in the Rose Bowl, around 4 p.m.
