Going to School on Labor Day

It may be Labor Day weekend, but that doesn't mean an automatic day off for a number of area kids. Many students in school districts across the panhandle including the Amarillo Independent School District have to hit the books Monday.

NewsChannel 10 received a number of calls from people who are not happy about it. We're told this may be the first time kids have had to go to class in Amarillo. The change is a result of new Texas laws prohibiting school from starting before the last Monday in August which was the 27th.

Schools had to make up the days they lost from starting late in the year. Amarillo students will instead have Columbus Day off in October. Not all kids in the area have to head to class tomorrow though.

Students in Canyon, Pampa, Panhandle, River Road and Hereford all have the day off.
