If the Eagles win the Super Bowl, what happens to the school schedule during the parade?

Having made it through the National Football Conference championship round by defeating the San Francisco 49ers, 31-7, the Eagles have a shot at winning the Super Bowl on February 12. Next, the Eagles will play the Kansas City Chiefs in Arizona. If the Eagles win the Super Bowl, there will be a parade in the city of Philadelphia. Based on the 2018 Super Bowl win, the parade will likely be scheduled for Thursday, February 16.

On February 16 and 17, Archbishop Carroll is having its Mental Health and Wellness Summit. This may mean that some students and teachers will miss school to participate in the parade if it is scheduled on one of those days. Five years ago, most schools, including the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, closed for the day to encourage participation in the parade. A similar situation may occur again. A parade day will not be announced until the Eagles actually win the Super Bowl. 

Students and teachers expressed their opinions on the matter.

Joe Zanoni, a sophomore, said: “We should take off school and move the mental health days to the week that follows.

Mr. O’Brien, a theology teacher, said: “I think it makes sense to have off because there are many seniors on Kairos, and a community event like the parade can do a lot of good for our mental health.”
