No news was apparently good news Friday morning as business was going on as usual at Geneva schools.

Friday was the first day teachers were legally allowed to strike, but administration officials and teachers spend all day Thursday negotiating, and apparently agreed to continue Friday.

Outside school there were no picket lines, and one parent outside Harrison Elementary School said the planned half day Friday - a school improvement day - was going on as usual.
