Committee Hopes School Starts After Labor Day

Posted: Updated:

This November parents will get to choose whether or not their students get a warmer summer.

The Start School After Labor Day Committee turned in a petition with more than 16,000 signatures supporting all schools across the state to start after Labor Day.

"We want a better quality of life for our children. We want it to be a better place to live and North Dakota is such a wonderful place. And our summers are short. We want our kids to be able to play outside and have more of a summer when the weather's nice. I mean it's as simple as that," says Kelly Heniert of the group.

The committee says they have high hopes that votes will be in favor of this change come November.
