Some schools delay or cancel classes on Super Bowl Monday

At least two high schools in Massachusetts are letting their students sleep in the day after the Super Bowl.

Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School in Easton plans to delay classes by three hours on Monday. The school announced the news on Facebook and released a funny video that shows students pleading with the superintendent to start classes later on the morning after the Super Bowl. The Facebook post states that the decision was made “in support of [the] Patriots” and that Southeastern predicts that the hometown favorites will beat the Philadelphia Eagles by 3 points.

Meanwhile, Malden Catholic told students there would be no classes at all on Monday. “On Sunday February 4th, the Patriots will once again play in the Super Bowl,” read the announcement in the school’s daily bulletin. “As has been the tradition at Malden Catholic during the Brady-Belichick Era, we will celebrate a Headmaster’s Holiday on Monday February 5th. Enjoy the game and Go Pats!”
