OPINION

KETHLEDGE, Circuit Judge. The parties appeal and cross-appeal the district court’s decisions as to the defendants’ liability under a collective-bargaining agreement. Of more immediate concern to us here, however, is whether the district court’s judgment was final for purposes of appellate jurisdiction. We hold it was not.

GLEN LAKE COMMUNITY SCHOOLS, et al.,
Defendants-Appellees.
   No. 17-1848
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Western District of Michigan at Grand Rapids.
No. 1:15-cv-01068—Gordon J. Quist, District Judge.

OPINION

THAPAR, Circuit Judge. Small towns are no stranger to fractious school-board politics. Maple City, Michigan is no exception. The school-district superintendent and school-board president both had strong personalities, which made for tense board meetings and heated disagreements. Some controversies even made their way into the local paper. And now one has made its way into federal court. Joan Groening, the former superintendent, took time off work for medical reasons. Not long after, and in the midst of a squabble with the board, she resigned. She now claims that the board violated the Family and Medical Leave Act.

. . .

We AFFIRM the district court’s judgment.
