    It's the schedule I've always known--as a teacher, a mom and a student. The first day of school is the day after Labour Day (we don't have any mandatory days before then) and this year the students finish at 11:30 on June 27th and teachers are "free" on June 28th after morning meetings and after our rooms are packed up for the summer.

    Won't complain at all about my 9 weeks of summer. It's always tough this time of year when everyone else is finishing and I'm still in the classroom, but it is nice when many here are getting ready to head back and I'm only halfway through my break.

    I get that, but my summer is 11.5 weeks. Our school days are super long, though, so it all balances out. We get out May 20th (1/2 day work day for teachers) and teachers go back August 8.

    Wait a minute, your summer is 9 weeks but MissCeliaB’s is 11.5 weeks. You got the short end of the stick not only with the timing of summer but the length. Oof!

    There have been times when I've wished for longer days as a trade-off for a shorter year. This year, however, my class is exhausting and I need them to go home after being with them for our 6.5 hour school day.

    My last day is May 30. It would have been the 22, but we had several snow days.

    Same here. I’m so ready to be done with school!

    Thankfully one day is awards, one is “fly up” to meet our new classes (and that one is a half day with our grade level taking the afternoon for an ice cream party), one is going to be literally cleaning and watching a movie... so really closer to three days.

    I get out this Friday the 24th. I'm always ready for summer but this year a little more so because we have been in testing mode for almost 6 weeks. Last year it was only a week but this year we transitioned to online testing and it took FOREVER. The kids are done, I'm done, and its time to wrap it up. :)
