That is crazy! Did you get a month off for Christmas or something?<br><br>
The summer gets shorter and shorter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">

We are out June 9th, go back the day after labor day. That is, IF we decide to go back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I am really surprised to see how late it begins in other parts of the US, myself. I think our school year is mandated at about 180 days, they schedule around 185 with the extra for snow and other cancellations.

HA!<br><br>
Our state passed a law in November - after next year's calendar was already in place - that school can't start before august 25th! So we get 3 months!<br><br>

So, our district is kinda messed up.<br><br>
They get one 1/2 day on Friday a month for teacher prep (plus the regular holidays, days off for confrences, etc...).<br><br>
At least two weeks for Winter Break.<br><br>
One week "Mid-Winter" break (Feb)<br><br>
One week "Spring" break (April)

We get out June 9th and go back on September 7th. In WA state, they mandate so many hours in the classroom rather than so many days in the classroom. Our Waldorf schools days are longer so we get out earlier than the public schools. Also, in Seattle, the weather is better in August and September (generally) so I think that is why we start later. There is a saying in Seattle, that summer doesn't start until after July 4th.

I know. Which is why our district (Lake Washington, btw) starting on 8/31 is so STUPID (they don't have air conditioning--- it's going to be horrid there all sept).

Did you want to rub it in or something? :LOL<br><br>
My kids have one more day, I have two more lunches to pack and one more class party to get through before we are done. Yeah!<br><br>
I don't know when we are suppose to go back, I am so hoping we homeschool next year. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br>
OT:For the Washington folks, is September a good time to visit?
