No school doesn’t mean no fun. Oberlin’s recreation department hosted a single-day program Feb. 16 while the district was closed for professional development. Kids in grades K-5 played soccer in giant plastic bubbles, colored their own slap bracelets, played with remote-controlled cars, and more at Eastwood Elementary School.
