Presidents Day: What’s Open and What’s Closed

Not everyone has the day off.

Monday is Presidents Day, a federal holiday that gives some people — but not everyone — the day off.

Pine-Richland public school students have the day off and most likely will be sleeping in late or perhaps making a trip to Mount Rushmore to celebrate four presidents at one time.

Or not.

Here’s the scoop on which government offices are open/closed and who is meeting:

If you're looking to do something presidential, instead of simply hitting Presidents Day sales, here's a list of presidential sites compiled by Lauren Himiak for About.com's National & State Parks website:

George Washington Birthplace National Monument in Virginia;

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial in Indiana;

Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Illinois.

The National Park Service also maintains a number of sites that commemorate other past presidents, including John AdamsThomas JeffersonJohn Quincy AdamsMartin Van Buren, Andrew Johnson, Ulysses Grant, James Garfield, Teddy RooseveltWilliam Taft, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

For that four-for-the-price-of-one site, there's Mount Rushmore.
