    When do you go back??

    We get 6 weeks and the kids get 7 weeks... Teachers have to report back on 7/21!! I can't believe how busy I've been and how fast the weeks are going by...Yikes!!

    Wow that seems really short :(

    My last day was May 27th and we go back on August 17th. We (students and teachers) all back back together - no teacher PAID work day before the first day of school. I work a lot in my room during the summer. I usually give myself the entire month of June off and then dive into getting ready for next year after the 4th.

    Our kids were done on June 4th and I had teacher work days until June 11th. Teachers go back on August 26th and the kids return September 2nd (Wednesday before Labor Day).

    About 2 1/2 months for me...not bad :)

    Students finished up May 29th. I was done June 2nd. I am moving to a new school so I had to pack EVERYTHING (textbooks, personal items, everything...) and I won't be able to get into my new school (still under construction) until the middle of July. Preplanning starts July 24th. Open house July 28th. Students return August 3. We are on a modified schedule also and have weeks off in October, November, December (2 weeks), February, and April.

    This year our district finished up on the 18th. We are starting kind of late for the next school year -- kids start on the 10th of September, I think. Which means that the first official day for teachers is the 8th or 9th... I think it is the 9th. Normally it is a week or two earlier, but "they" follow a formula for determining when school starts. School starts the Thursday after Labor day, and Labor Day is later this year. It's kind of silly.

    We finished up on June 12, though I went in the following week to work in my room. We're back on August 27. I wish we would change our schedule to start earlier and finish the first semester before winter break, because as it is we come back for 2 weeks and then have finals.

    I'm on year round. I get a month off after every trimester. For the summer I've been off since May 30th and go back July 15th for preservice because I'm D track. School doesn't officially get out until this Friday for the other tracks tho, so they only get 3 weeks!

    teachroo, I would love the opportunity to try that schedule. I get so burned out by Feb/March.

    We got out June4th (teachers June5th). I am going to a new school and so I'll have to go through new teacher training (YAY!)- did you notice sarcasam? So, i will have to go back Aug.5th and go all the way through when the kids start on Aug.24th.
    Plus, i have to go get my room ready before new teacher training starts, so I will do that the last week of July.

    The kids were supposed to be out May 22, but due to snow days it was June 5 before they got out. We also had to go extended days.

    The last day for teachers was June 11.

    Open House is July 30, and kids come back on August 6.

    We are always out the Thursday before Memorial Day and always return the Tuesday after Labor Day. So we have the entire June, July, and August off yearly plus a few days in May and September.

    Our last exam was June 9.

    We always have faculty meetings the Tuesday before Labor Day, followed by 3 days of Freshman Orientation.

    This is the longest summer I can remember!! :)

    The kids got out on 6/11, teachers' last day was 6/12.
    Teachers go back 8/27, kids start on 8/31.
    Next June we'll get out a little later since we are now going to get the week off for Thanksgiving instead of the two days.

    We have 180 days. The law also says that school can't start before August 25th or get out after June 10th-so we're kinda stuck with what days we have for now.
