    the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday before Thanksgiving, we got semi-off. Half the kids would show up and have easy/fun days and the other half would be gone deer hunting.

      A lot of rural schools in Michigan close for the opening of deer hunting season.  Even those that don't record a whole bunch of children calling in sick.  I went to a city school, though a lot of the kids came from the exurbs, and remember how empty it was on those days.
