First Monday of Deer Season

I just read in the paper that my school district no longer will have Monday off for Deer season. They made the decision due to the PGC rescheduling the first day of deer season to Saturday. I wonder how many other schools are doing the same?

I'm sure they won't be the only ones.

the school districts should not get in a hurry as this is only a trial run this year. the game commission will determine weither they are going to make it an annual thing. they need to let the kids off on Mondays so they can get an extra day to hunt.

And one of the reasons given for the Sat. opener was so that young hunters would have time to hunt. Now they are losing Mon. Just like some of us said they would.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

"When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it, the deer hears it, and the bear smells it."

Are you a student or parent?

My guess is most students will have parental permission no matter what the school district decides.

At minimum, 1/3 of the school districts in PA do not currently have off the Monday after Thanksgiving....
100% are off the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

(And the PGC's stated reason was actually to "Increase Participation in Opening Day"... that was morphed into "It's for the Chirrun" by the public.)

Their spring break will be one day longer or the end of the school year will be one day sooner....unless their allocated snow days exceed what they have set aside...
So pull the kid out of school for a day and she/he will get done school one day earlier, win-win...

I think many of suspected this would happen.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
