South Jersey schools announce late start on Monday after the Eagles’ Super Bowl
South Jersey schools are leading the charge in instituting late starts on February 13th, the day after the Philadelphia Eagles face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII.
South Jersey Schools Announce Late Start for Monday after Eagles Super Bowl
Several school districts have already scheduled two-hour delays following Super Bowl LVII. In an email sent to the Gloucester City school district, Superintendent Sean Gorman stated it was important to give students and staff the opportunity to enjoy the game with their families and still attend school and work the next day safely and well-rested.
Clearview Regional High School in South Jersey scheduled a teacher in-service day on February 13th, which will give students off as well as teachers, assuming they already fulfilled their in-service commitments for the school year.
Back in 2018 when the Eagles won the Super Bowl, several school districts in the Philly and South Jersey area canceled classes completely, so a two-hour delay definitely seems reasonable. If only businesses and other work-related activities were also cancelled the on Super Bowl Monday.
Honestly, it should be written into law that if you live in a city and your team is playing for a championship, then two things should happen.
- Two-Hour Delay on Super Bowl Monday.
- Complete Day Off Work and/or School for the Parade.
No official word on when the Super Bowl parade will be if (when) the Philadelphia Eagles win the Lombardi Trophy, but I think it’s safe to assume we’ll all be on Broad Street either Wednesday or Thursday.
