Oklahoma Schools Fear Y2K



Oklahoma Schools Fear Y2K - (HOLDENVILLE) -- Y-2-K worries in Oklahoma are prompting serious precautions in local schools. Some schools are extending the Christmas holidays just to miss the change to the year 2000. Holdenville schools won't go back to class until January tenth. School officials say they're taking precautions just in case Y-2-k problems pop up. Other schools have scheduled an extra day or two off because they fear computers might turn off the heat or cause appliances to malfunction. Federal officials say thousands of schools nationwide could be forced to close because of Y-2-K problems.

I live in S. Central Pennsylvania and I just had a recieved a note from my sons school, lastnight. I states that the school will begin the Christmas holiday on Dec 21st and return to class on JAN 5TH. My wife questioned this and the reply she received was the schools concern about their Y2K compliance. We also found out, just this morning, that other local school districts will have the same vacation time and this includes 2 local colleges.

When I went to high school in Antediluvian times, our winter holiday went from Dec. 20 to Jan. 15th. Of course we also got out for the year on June 15.
