Get the Most Out of Your Labor Day Weekend
What's open, what's not, in the Caldwells area.
While summer is not officially over until September 22, Labor Day marks the the traditional end to summer.
For many this upcoming long weekend allows for one last trip to the shore, a barbecue get together, a family outing or spending one more late night at the town pool.
What’s open, what’s closed Labor Day? Here’s a quick list:
◆ Municipal offices in Caldwell, North Caldwell and West Caldwell will be closed.
◆ Post offices, schools and school board offices are closed for the holiday. Students in the Caldwell-West Caldwell and West Essex school districts report back to school on Wednesday, September 5. North Caldwell students in the K-6 school district report back on Thursday, September 6.
◆ The Caldwell Community Center will be closed beginning on Friday for renovations. The goal is for the center to re-open fully on Monday, Sept. 17. The borough has set up a hotline for members of the community to check on the progress of the work. Call 973-228-7665. Regular email blasts will also be sent to members and updates will be posted at www.caldwell-nj.com.
