Jumpin' Jack's Opening 2009

Daily Gazette reports
Scotia-Glenville School District spokesman Robert Hanlon said 200 of the school’s 950 students brought in notes from parents saying they had to leave school between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. The district has an attendance policy saying people can leave the building with a parent’s note. However, Hanlon said this was well above the average for excused absences. “We have 15 to 20 a day.”

Line for Jumpin' Jack's 45 before opening
No, this isn’t a line for the new xBox or iPhone.
It’s 45 minutes before the 2009 opening of Jumpin’ Jack’s.

Most cited some type of personal business such as a doctor’s or dentist appointment. One parent might have been a bit too honest. “We did have one note that says my child is going to Jumpin’ Jacks, and it’s marked as an illegal absence,” Hanlon said.”

The rain held off until dinner time when the line of umbrella’s still reached along the front of the parking lot.  The traditional opening day Pistachio soft ice cream was also in demand.

New this year, an Italian Sausage and pepper sandwich.
