Alerte info : La rentrée scolaire des élèves est reportée au 2 septembre

In France, all schools start the fall term on the same day. This announcement lets everyone know when they have to end their vacations, get home, and finish the back to school shopping.

The effect is something like Thanksgiving in the US. It triggers traffic jams on the highways and shopping jams in the stores.

But as long as you don't have to be on the highway, it should be a good time to visit tourist sites.

It's 1st September (Mon) for students in 2014. Was 2nd Sept in 2013.

Good point. I only copied the headline. The full television story said that schools could choose either day as was best for students and teachers.

No, the date has just been changed to 2 September 2014. It is a major news item today. It is the teachers who had the date changed because the government had decided that they should start work on 29 August and the teacher said it would screw up their August holiday rentals. So now the teachers start work on 1 September and the students start on 2 September.
