I wonder if anyone can help me here. I need to know what English people say in this occasion. Imagine you are a student and Tuesday is an official holiday. So you naturally won't go to school because it is off on that particular day. Now what if Thursday of the same week is also an official holiday. Where I live people say classes on Wednesday are not "officially active". I need to know what a common word, phrase or idiom English people would use to describe "not officially active".
in our country people tend not to go to school if the day before and the day after are closed although they shouldn't. So if a child doesn't go to school on Wednesday and his parents ask why aren't you going to school today? He might say well the school is ......... ( not officially closed not open) . I need the English word to fill the gap.
