Monday, March 31, is a state holiday in Texas in honor of labor leader and activist Cesar Chavez. So do the kids have the day off from school? What about city and county offices, will they be open or closed? Because Cesar Chavez Day is only an optional state holiday and not a federal holiday, it will be mostly business as usual in El Paso on Monday.

So, if the kiddos are enrolled in the El Paso, Ysleta, Socorro, or Canutillo ISD then it’s up in the mornin’ and out to school for them. UTEP and EPCC students, on the other hand, can sleep in. They have the day off.

The El Paso County Courthouse as well as all county offices will be closed in observance of the holiday, but City Hall and other city run departments will be open. Sun Metro will be operating on its regular weekday schedule as well. Additionally, there will be mail delivery on Monday and banks will be open.

Cesar Chavez Day celebrates the birthday of the migrant farmworker activist who co-founded the United Farm Workers, and is observed on March 31 each year. Chavez passed away in 1993 of unspecified natural causes. He was 66. Click HERE to learn more about the man, his life, and his struggle.
