When Labor Day always preceded the first day of school

I remember a time when the first day of school was always the first Wednesday of September after Labor Day. Perhaps that Tuesday after Labor Day was allowed for travel home from the last summer picnics; which would have been a long journey in the time of horses and buggies. For me, that Tuesday was always a time to assemble my wardrobe for the coming school year--especially during my high school years. Shirts, ties, and slacks had to be ironed; sports' jackets had to be retrieved from the dry cleaners. We were required to dress in a business-like manner in those days.
