Calling for 2 hour delay for Monday, Feb 2

Monday, Feb 2, 2009, Pittsburgh Public Schools should have a two-hour delay. This delay should be announced on Wednesday, at the latest.

Sunday, Feb 1, the Pittsburgh Steelers are in the SuperBowl, of course.

On Monday, Feb 2, a two hour delay would be most welcomed.

By the way, there is no school on Monday and Tuesday of this week. These days were slated to be without students as the yearly calendar was released. They are in-service days.

So, what do you say? Agree? Mr. Roosevelt, make it so.

As of Tuesday, we lear that Western Pennsylvania's Eat N’ Park Restaurants Will Close Early On Super Bowl Sunday

City schools to have 2-hour delay day after Super Bowl
Thursday, January 29, 2009
By Joe Smydo, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Pittsburgh Public Schools will operate on a two-hour delay Monday because of the Super Bowl, Superintendent Mark Roosevelt said today.

Noting that Sunday's big game means a "late night," Mr. Roosevelt said the delay should cut down on student and staff absenteeism.

He said the district operated on a two-hour delay the day after the Steelers won the Super Bowl three years ago.
