Mater Dei High School Closed Monday

Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana decided on Friday that they will not hold classes on Monday due to the immigration demonstration that will be held in the civic center area that is not far from their campus.

Pamela Coe, the school spokesperson, told the OC Register that the only reason for the closure was “traffic problems.”

“We are a commuter school,” Coe said. “With the last demonstrations, there was a lot of traffic around the school.”

I imagine that the school officials might be afraid of the number of students that walk-out, but I think it’s funny that the school cites “traffic” as the only reason for the closure.
