    The 25th is late. One year we had so many snow days that we went to the very end of June. If we had any more snow days we would have had to go to school on Saturdays to make up the days.

    To all of our members that are STUDENTS, TEACHERS and SCHOOL STAFF
    (school has been out here in our county for 3+ weeks)
    I'm school staff now, but in a year round central office role it's hard getting all of the end of school emails and out of office replies from my colleagues.

    Seems to me that now many districts are out earlier and go back earlier.

    It's the snow days. Our district started after Labor Day a few years ago and that was the year of the snow and ice storms from hades. They thought they would ever get out of school that June! I felt so bad for the kids, and for parents who were trying to manage vacations tht were planned well in advance of that nightmare June.

    School is finally out for our kids. Kady graduated on Saturday, YAY! We were able to finally share that her gift from her Pa was a trip back to Aruba, so we leave on July 13. I cannot wait to be on that gorgeous beach, cocktail in hand, book at my feet, with my best intentions to read it, LOL!

    lol. I never would have gotten away with that. Besides, in our lovely district, the teacher work the day after the kids leave-some schools let their teachers leave at lunch and others make them stay all day. My last few years we had breakfast off school grounds and could leave after breakfast.
