It’s Friday and thank goodness for that! Leander ISD has a winter break on February 2nd & 3rd , so I’m sure that many of you are taking off early and heading to the mountains for an extra long weekend of skiing and playing in the snow. Enjoy!
On February 1st, the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots will face off for Super Bowl XLIX. Enjoy the Big Game (and commercials) with some good food and craft beer.
Super Bowl Sunday is the end of the 30-day grace period on warnings for talking and texting while driving in Austin. So if you’re watching the game at a place other than on your sofa at home, just remember to drive hands-free and drink responsibly.
