District 16 school opening delayed by a week to Sept. 3

The starting date for the 2002-03 school year for Garfield County School District No. 16 in Parachute and Battlement Mesa has been changed from Aug. 27 to Sept. 3.

Furniture and other supplies arrived later than anticipated, so the later start date will enable staff to have everything ready for students upon their return. To compensate for the delayed starting date, a few minutes will be added to each school day.
