    When do you go back to school?

    I got my classroom mostly finished today, so I’m back to summer vacation mode until open house on July 30. I did my PD already, so the rest of that week is free. (I will still have some things to do in my room, like rosters/labels/etc.)

    August 6-Opening Day
    August 7-Kids Return

    My DH doesn’t start back until August 22 this year. That’s late for them. They are usually only about a week behind us.

    We go back July 30th for inservice.
    Kids start August 6th.
    There is no mandated PD over the summer but I’m going to a session next week. We can’t get her to the building until a week before inservice, so no working in the classroom til then. I’ll only go in a couple of days. I hate using the last week of break working in the room.

    Aug 6 for teachers, students come back Aug 13. I'm going part time this year and resigning at Christmas so I guess I'm ok with my summer ending :)

    This is our first week off, so the return to school is far away!

    The students' first day is September 4th. We have no mandatory days before then and set up our rooms at a pace that is comfortable for us.

    Teachers go back August 8th and students come back the 13th. Our last day of school was May 18th, so it's been a pretty nice little break!

    Teachers go back Aug 9th, students back Aug 15. But the 9th/10th is optional to get classrooms set up and stuff. I'll probably go in that Friday afternoon for a couple hours.

    I work at a year-round school....we got two weeks off at the "end" of the school year and will get two weeks off before the "beginning" of the school year.

    Wow, your school starts really early! I just couldn’t do that because I’m used to starting in the third week of August and so it would throw off my whole routine. I also say this because I *need* my summer break and am happy that I have roughly 1.5 months left. It’s when I can catch up on my sleep, haha!

    School officially starts for me on August 22nd.

    The first official day for teachers is August 7th, but we can voluntarily come in on the 6th for extra PD and get paid extra for it, so I'll do that. Kids come back the 13th. In the past, teachers have always started on a Friday and kids have always started on the following Wednesday. I liked that schedule a lot better. You'd be a little bummed to be getting up early and going back to work, but surprise, it's already Friday! Then the 3 day school week for kids the first week was good for building routines and such. IDK why they changed it.

    I'm getting to the point where I'm missing the structure of the school year, but on the other hand I don't really want to go back yet either! I know it'll be stressful once it starts!

    Teachers go back August 7, then the kids arrive August 13. I taught summer school this year which was the entire month of June, so I’m just now settling in to summer mode.

    We got our online training mail today, so that means we are winding down. We have several online quizzes to take every year. We used to have to do them in a meeting. It is much better just having to do them online.

    I have a mandatory student teacher orientation on Aug. 21st. I will then report to the high school on Aug. 27th when college classes start. :)

    Last week of August is our "teacher week"; we start after Labor Day (with a meet and greet during the teacher week). I'll probably start making more frequent trips to the classroom in the week before teacher week; right now, I go in about once a week or so just to stay busy :) (Wife works like normal over the summer)
