Green Bay School District to Switch Early Release Days for Packers’ Home Opener

Along with the Ashwaubenon School District, the Green Bay Area Public School District will be switching its early release professional learning day from Friday, September 9 to Thursday, September 8 to accommodate the Packers’ home opener events. With this switch, Thursday, September 8 will be the early release day; Friday, September 9 will be a regular school day.

 With the anticipation of thousands participating in home opener events starting at 10:00 a.m., a free concert, and the game, the district is concerned with student safety and transportation. Law enforcement has also advised the district that major roadways around Lambeau Field will be closed.

 There will be no afternoon 4-year-old kindergarten, Head Start, or early childhood programs on Thursday, September 8. Co-curricular activities will be held at the discretion of the coaches and advisors.

 “Our primary concern is for the safety of students in the Lambeau-area neighborhoods. With the scheduled festivities, streets shut down, fans and concert-goers finding parking and tailgating, we want to ensure our students are not put in any unsafe situations,” said Michelle Langenfeld, superintendent of the Green Bay Area Public School District. “By swapping days, we are minimizing the impact on families and student learning.”
