The Eagles will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Wissahickon is among the Philadelphia area school districts that are delaying opening next Monday, owing to the Super Bowl.

As the Birds face off Feb 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs in Glendale, Ariz., the game’s broadcast — and the wished-for, hoped-for, prayed-for local celebrations to follow — will most likely stretch into the night.

The time shift, reported by NBC10 Philadelphia, is designed to make the next school day more accommodating.

District superintendent Jim Crisfield wrote in an email that the rescheduled start time enables the students and staff to watch the game in its entirety.

Gloucester City School District (N.J.) is following suit.  

Wissahickon School District enrolls over 4,600 students in Lower Gwynedd, Ambler, and Whitpain townships.  

If fans don’t want to dish out thousands of dollars to see the Birds play in State Farm Stadium, they can tune into it on FOX (available on select streaming services) at 6:30 PM.
