I'm another who wouldn't have a problem with it as a once off. I used to love those types of days at school (I didn't watch much tv at home, so a movie was extra special ).
My mum is a teacher, I know how hard they work, it might have been the only time to gather those three teachers together before the reports were due and they made the best of it. Whatever the reason, I'm sure the kids loved it and will be getting back into the swing of things tomorrow, all refreshed and ready to learn (because kids do get really frazzled by the end of the year, even with 6 weeks to go, especially with the amount of home work they get these days).

Most schools at this stage would not be allowing teachers to borrow resources. Kids have to return library books, teachers have to return what they've borrowed throughout because the school needs to do stocktake. Everything is winding down. If the kids finish a workbook, they have to find space in other books instead of getting new ones.

Ds's teacher is at school at 7am for an 8am start, school finishes at 2.20pm and 2 days a week the teacher is rostered on at after school care til 3.30pm and she then usually goes back to the classroom to do whatever. We often have emails coming in at 5pm so she is obviously still at school then.
Also, just because it is nearing the end of the school year doesn't mean the teaching reduces. The teachers are often rushed to get the required learning for that year finished hence why the kids are coming home a little extra tired. I know this is the case at ds's school anyway as I am friends with a few of the teachers and my roster day in ds's classroom last week was quite an eye opener.

I'm sure most of them have their own families and interests outside of the work place that they would prefer to be spending time with or on.
Rightly so too.
