Yes, that's right, Benjamin has been in preschool since September, and he came home from school with this yesterday:
En raison d'un mouvement de grève, il n'y aura pas classe le jeudi 21 janvier."
Due to a strike, there will be no class Thursday, January 21st.
Proof that my child does indeed attend a very French school. What would a school year be without at least one strike? It's got that same sort of feeling as a snow day, minus the snow.
