The youths of Kansas City owe the Royals franchise big time. Yes, obviously for their first World Series title since 1985 — oh, and for shutting down class tomorrow for their victory parade!

Seriously, some school districts have pretty much created a makeshift holiday so students and teachers can celebrate the Royals — deets from KMBC:

“This decision was not made lightly, and district leaders weighed many important factors in the decision-making process. The district will follow the same procedures for reporting for duty for administrators, teachers, and support staff as those for inclement weather days,” a news release from the Shawnee Mission School District said.

Metropolitan Community College announced just before 11:15 p.m. CT that they would close for the parade tomorrow.

“I have received a lot of input that students and employees want to savor the moment and celebrate the occasion planned for tomorrow. Therefore, I am pleased to announce that WE WILL BE CLOSED TOMORROW so everyone can enjoy being an MCC fan of the Royals,” Chancellor Mark James said in an emailed statement.

We all know from experience that Tuesday holidays are pretty nonexistent, so shoutout to these schools for actually going through with this.

However, not everyone can have fun — students who attend KCMO public schools will be subjected to their usual six boring lectures while everyone else rages at the parade:

Those kids will undoubtedly be salty.
