surprise surprise. Wasnt one of the complaints for the change as some kids had school on Monday? So the schools that still have off Monday will give the kids 2 days but if they take it away then they have one and your still pulling your kids out of school anyhow. Should have left it alone.

I am assuming that is Monday of 2020. Most districts do not make changes like this mid year unless it is related to snow make up days.

What district is this and what newspaper printed it? I'd be interested in reading the article. Most schools have their calendar board approved and finalized earlier in the year plus these days are usually scheduled off because they are in support staff (custodians, maintenance, etc) contracts as holidays.

The school board stated "December 2", which is this year.

In 2020, the Monday falls on December 1.

With the Saturday opener kids will have a minimum of three unscheduled school days to hunt during the 13 day season. In some school districts the kids will have four unscheduled school days to hunt during the 13 day season.

With the Monday opener kids had a minimum of two unscheduled school days to hunt during the 12 day season. In some school districts the kids had three unscheduled school days to hunt during the 12 day season.

No matter how one looks at it, this change took NO opportunities away from kids/school schedules. In most cases it added opportunities to hunt without interfering with a scheduled school day.

Good luck, Tony

One of a thousand reasons to change back to Monday opener in 2020!

So...for the small percentage of schools across the state that gave the first day off, this could be a change.

However...for the overwhelming majority of schools across the state, those students can now hunt Opening Day without having to take a day off.

Get over it, take off the blinders and break your glass sphere you live in....
There is absolutely no down side to hunting deer on the Saturday after Thanksgiving....
If you're worried about the "Tradition" see a therapist, they'll teach ya how to cope....
