    I was talking to some friends about our first weeks of school and realized how much they vary. We always start on a Wednesday with the kids coming for 3 early release days.

    What day of the week do you start? Are they full days?

    Just curious about how it looks in other schools. Happy New Year!

    The day after labor day is always a teacher work day then the kids start the next day.

    Students always start the Tuesday after Labour Day. Teachers are in and out before that getting set up.

    We start on the 21st. It's a half day, and a half day again on Friday, then start in full on the following monday. The two half days are for fun, mostly, getting to know each other, and talk about summer, maybe distribute some books, and give the kids a list of what they will need in each class.

    Kids start on a Monday with full days. We nay have 2 half days a year. I wish we started on a Wednesday or Thursday and had the weekend to recover. It's a long week.

    Tuesday after Labor Day due to Michigan's law. (Well, I believe you can start even after that, but not before it unless you are year-round.)

    My new district does a half day.
