Take our Poll: Should East Penn Open Before Labor Day?
It's not a done deal yet, but the East Penn School District's working 2012-2013 calendar has an August start date.
The proverbial fat lady hasn't yet sung, but it seems as though kids in the East Penn School District may find themselves heading back into the classroom before the community pools close for the summer.
The 2012-2013 school calendar is scheduled to come before the East Penn Board of School Directors for approval at the board's Feb. 13 meeting, according to Nicole Bloise, East Penn community liaison, and that working calendar does have an August start date.
Arguments in favor of the early start include the ability to better cope with snow days, while those against it cite everything from infringement on summer vacations to impact on summer jobs.
Now we want to know what you think. Take our poll.
