District Schools, Administrative Offices to close Thursday for the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles Parade
PHILADELPHIA — The following is the official statement from Dr. William R. Hite, Superintendent of The School District of Philadelphia regarding the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles Parade.
“The excitement of the Eagles first Super Bowl victory is a once in a lifetime event. For this reason we have decided to give our students, teachers and their families the chance to witness history. All School District of Philadelphia schools and administrative offices will be closed this Thursday, February 8, 2018.
On behalf of the students and staff of the School District of Philadelphia, thank you to everyone associated with the Eagles for the difference you make in our schools. You have been a stellar example for Philadelphia’s students and we really appreciate your steadfast commitment to education.
Even though we will be closed on Thursday, I want to remind every student, parent and guardian that attending school is absolutely essential. That’s why I want to see everyone in school, on-time and ready to learn on Friday. Just like the Eagles were football heroes on Sunday, I want all of our students to be attendance heroes everyday.
Congratulations to our Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles and I will see everyone in school on Friday. Enjoy the parade!”
