U2 Concert Extends Summer Vacation For New York District
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Students in a New York school district will squeeze an extra day out of summer vacation thanks to the rock band U2.
The band is playing a concert at New Era Field in Orchard Park on Sept. 5. That was to be the first day of class in the suburban Buffalo district.
Instead, district officials say schools will open Sept. 6 because of the expected traffic increase.
The district says on its website that the first day of school already means transportation delays as students figure out where to find their buses and drivers learn their routes. The superintendent recommended the one-day delay.
