Even though we got out in may, this still seems sooo early.
Its about this time of year when i wish we actually didn't have two weeks for fall break and two weeks for spring break. :roll:

Are you in one of the year round systems?

I'm just making arrangements for my teen-age niece to spend a week with me before school starts at the end of this month...

Is this your last year?

That stinks. I would rather have a longer summer than those 2 breaks you're getting in the fall and spring. I don't know where you live, but around here, some of the older elementary schools don't have air conditioning, and it's too hot to go to school right now!

The city where I live is split between two school districts. In District #1, the elementary schools on year-round schedule started back on July 5. The middle schools will start up on August 6 (next Monday). District #2 is on a modified traditional schedule with one week vacation for fall, three weeks for winter, and two weeks in the spring. The first day of school for them is August 15 -- my daughter is going into 7th grade, and my niece will start Kindergarten that day.

We go back next week, we get 3 months off for summer, a week off for Spring, a week off for Thanksgiving, and 2 weeks for Christmas.

Wow, that's super early. We used to start the last week on Aug. and go until mid June and We had a week off for Christmas, in Feb., and in April and 3 days off for Thanksgiving. Do you go to a private school?

Up until last year, our school year was similar. They'd get out on/around May 22, and go back first week of August.

This year, they made summer a little longer, and they go back August 20th.

Our kids started Aug 2nd, and this year they have taken away 3 weeks of their breaks during the school year, and they are only getting out a week early in May. So they are going 2 weeks longer than usual.

I don't like it when school starts, it's harder on me now than when I was in school. :roll:

My school district gets out of school May 30 if there isn't any snow days, and we start school August 16. You don't have a long summer at all! And I think we have the same fall and spring break lengths...
