Gloucester school children are getting a two-hour break on Feb. 13, the morning after the Eagles play the Chiefs in Super Bowl 57.
New Jersey’s Gloucester City School District announced it will start school two hours later than normal on Monday, February 13.
Gloucester City is located just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia in New Jersey — not far from the Walt Whitman Bridge that crosses the river and leads to Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles
“It is a rare and special time for families to watch our local professional football team compete in the Super Bowl,” Sean Gorman, the school district’s superintendent, said in a statement.
“We feel that it’s important to give students and staff the opportunity to enjoy the game with the families and still attend school and work the next day safely and well-rested.”
