Re: Scool's Out!

Only in Ticino, Tom.
We've got another three weeks here.

(And I'm going to assume the misspelling in your title was done for the effect.)

Ticino Tom is a 70s dude. He's got Alice Cooper playing in his head.

[Pedant Mode] Well School (in this context) is plural. Schools are out. If it was only one school (could be, it is Ticino) then it would be right.

Actually school in this context as a general generic term is singular so the apostrophe is correct.
