MLTnews Poll: Are you going to the Seahawks championship parade in downtown Seattle Wednesday?

seahawksNearly everyone knows by now that a victory parade for the 2014 Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks is scheduled for downtown Seattle Wednesday. According to our online news partner The Seattle Times, the parade will start at 11 a.m. on Fourth Avenue, south of Denny Way, and will continue along Fourth, arriving at CenturyLink Field around 1:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to carpool or travel to the parade route using transit, as parking will be very limited.

Even though Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll suggested in a Monday morning press conference that kids should be allowed to skip school to attend the event, the Edmonds School District – like nearly all public schools in Puget Sound – will hold classes as usual on Wednesday.

That said, we are hearing many anecdotal reports of parents who plan to take their kids out of school anyway to attend the parade. No word yet from the district on whether that absence will be excused or unexcused.

  1. Anyone taking a day off of work or kids not going to school because of a recreational sporting event parade are absurd. Did you take your kid out of school and not show up for work when the president and his motorcade were in town ? How about when there was a memorial for a fallen officer or firefighter ? That said …. YEAH HAWKS !!! WTG !
