What’s Open, Closed on Cesar Chavez Day in El Paso
Tuesday, March 31, is a state holiday in Texas in honor of labor leader and activist Cesar Chavez. Although it is a holiday, it’s only an optional state holiday, so it will be mostly business as usual in El Paso.
● Classes will be in session for all schools in the El Paso, Ysleta, Socorro, Canutillo, Clint, Fabens, Anthony, and San Eli Independent School Districts. UTEP and EPCC students, on the other hand, can sleep in. They have Tuesday off.
● The El Paso County Courthouse, as well as all county offices, will be closed. City Hall and all city run departments will be open.
● Sun Metro will be operating on its regular weekday schedule, as will Environmental Services — so if Tuesday is your trash collection day then make sure you put your bins out on the curb.
● Additionally, there will be mail delivery on Tuesday, and post offices will be open. Banks and credit unions will also.
