Students Could Get An Extended Summer Break

Hundreds of eastern Kentucky students may get to enjoy an extra couple weeks of summer break.

Harlan County public school officials say they'll likely push back the start of school for the entire school system until August 25th.

They say they want to make sure everything is ready at the new high school.

“The construction company is busy trying to finish up the last details and to get everything cleaned up for the best interest of the students,” Mike Howard, Harlan Assistant Superintendent.

The decision to delay the start of school is pending school board approval.

    Smart move in my opinion. When a huge consolidation like that happens, its best to make sure everything is fully ready by opening day.
