BILL FILED TO OPEN PUBLIC SCHOOLS AFTER LABOR DAY

Delaware Republican State Senator Gerald Hocker, will sponsor a bill to allow schools in Sussex County to open their doors after Labor Day.

Currently schools return students the last week in August. The purpose of the bill is needed claims Hocker because of the number of teenagers who work summer jobs especially at the beach.

Returning to school early leaves many employees short for the Labor Day week-end. Also extending the vacation time another week gives families another week to vacation allowing more money for Sussex merchants, Hocker says.

Back a few years, school always began after Labor Day. Back then it was for the farmers who needed help bringing in their corn and soy beans.

Hocker has two large grocery stores in the Millville area and employs extra help during the busy summer months.

  1. The Indian River School District, part of which Sen. Hocker represents already goes back to school after the holiday. Not sure why he believes they need to pass a bill.
