Amherst schools closed early on Tuesday but the the School of Rock was standing room only as kids piled into the Amherst Public Library to take advantage of the time off. One large screen featured Guitar Hero III with stereo speakers cranked up while a regular tv touted the original game. The impromtu rockfest lasted about four hours with more than forty kids trying their skill. Add to that 8 quarts of lemonade, a bag of suckers, a giant bag of cheese doodles and three boxes of microwave popcorn and I think you could say it was a pretty good time. When's the next day school is out early?
