EXACTLY the same for me. Except I have one day of PD (July 29) before that.
I have to go back on August 11th. The students go back the following week.
Don't want to think about it, but it's August 8th.
I am a new teacher so I am beyond excited to get things going! 40 days!
Don't make me count! My last day was Friday! Lol
I have to go back August 1. Kids start august 11. Meet the teacher is aug 7, so the room needs to be ready by then. I'm switching schools and grades and have a LOT to do this summer to prepare, in addition to moving 400 miles away...so even though I am excited, I cannot think about school starting yet! Too much stuff needs to happen first!!

I am a new teacher and I am also excited to get started. I have a couple of countdowns going on. 14 days until I turn in my notice at work, 28 days until my last day at current job, 32 days until the kids first day (short day on 8/4) and then the first full day is on 8/11 which is 39 days.
My teaching position will start on 8/1 so basically 29 days until I start.
Ugh! I'm switching schools this year, so new teacher orientation starts July 23rd...so twenty days! School starts August 5th. We got out in early May, though.
I go back July 28th. Kids return August 5th.
I don't even want to know, considering our last day was exactly a week ago. I do know my trip to Disney is 38 days away, that's my only current countdown!
We start July 25th
Meet the teacher is July 30th.
Students start August 1st
Our students finished May 29th
Teachers finished June 2nd.
Have a conference July 14th and July 23rd. Gonna try and squeeze another vacation in between the two. Already took one for five days.

one month exactly on July 4th.
kids start on August 6th.
I still have a couple of pals who still work at my old district & one told me Aug 1st already. That's the earliest I've ever seen it in all the last 16 years I've either worked or heard.
Your school year ended on June 27 and you HAVE to go back on August 1?
Your kids only get 6 weeks and you only get 4 weeks of summer break?
I'm moving to another area of the state and switching schools. My new school got out 2 weeks before we did. August 1 and 4 is new hire orientation - everyone else comes back August 5.
My old school was in a bit of a mess this year because we opened a new campus and construction was delayed two weeks, delaying the start and end of the school year by two weeks.
My new school has 6 weeks of summer break for teachers (7 for kids), which I think is reasonable. They have longer and more frequent breaks during the year - a week in Oct and another for Thanksgiving, 2 for Christmas, and 2 for spring break.
I don't have much of a summer this year, but oh well. Next year will be better. I've already started having stress dreams about next year...sigh.
^^^ Good luck this upcoming year! Hopefully, the move and transition will be worth the stress b/c your new school will be a better experience.
Thank you! I hope so.

Teachers report back on Aug 6 for PD, and students start on Aug 12. With my new instructional coach position, I start back on July 30th. Oh and I have a training day in about a week, but it's just a "Training of the Trainers" thing so we know how to be in the front of a room LOL.

We don't finish school until the 18th July and we return on 1st September. What I really hate is immediately the schools break up the stores put out their 'back to school' displays of uniforms and stationary etc! It really depresses me when I shop.
What are your school breaks like during the school year? How many teaching days are in a school year?
We have 200 days in school. The kids do 195 days and we have 5 days for CPD (training)
Nominally we have 2 weeks at Christmas, 2 weeks for Easter, 6 weeks in the summer and then 3 weeks in the middle of the three terms (Semesters in your speak) which adds up to 13 weeks holidays but they shave a day off here and there to give us 12 weeks away from school in reality.
