    We are able to get back into the school August 30th to set up for next year. Our schedule is our own--we can spend as much or as little time in the building that week as we wish. We do have a mandated Professional Development Day on September 2nd. The students start the Tuesday after Labour Day.

    My first official day is Aug 10th, kids come in the 11th. Obviously that is NOT enough time, so I will go set up my room before that.

    i volunteered to help with new teacher orientation (though a doctor's appointment kept me from attending the meeting where I'll find out exactly what I'm helping with)
    So I'll be in on either August 26 or 27th for that.

    Full faculty meeting is on Tuesday August 31. Frosh start the next day for their orientation program, and the full school community returns on September 7.

    Teachers back July 26th (My anniversary) and Kids back the 28th. Not as bad as my first year teaching when kids came back on my anniversary.

    (For those of you wondering, we get out in May and have a two week fall and spring break)

    NEW TEACHER REPORTING AUGUST 4TH! (My school is year-round.) Kids come August 9th. :woot: Some residents complained about getting placed in a year-round school, but honestly I'm excited to go. Otherwise I'd have to wait until late aug/early sept.

    Teachers go back Aug. 16th and students start on Aug. 23rd, but I'm on an extended contract because I'm the yearbook adviser, so I start on Aug. 2nd. I'm excited b/c I will have that much extra time to get my classroom set up, get some lesson plans out of the way, meet with my yearbook staff, etc.

    I go back on August 13 and students come on the 25th. However, due to all our snow days we won't get out until June 10, 11 or later. We had 14 snow days this year. Our district closes at the mention of snow.

    I have the WORST schedule this year:

    August 30th-Teachers return
    August 31st-Open House
    September 1st-School starts

    Not to mention, August 30th is packed with district and school meetings. So, they expect us to get everything ready in ONE day, so we can have Open House at 4:30.

    I just feel like that expectation is disrespectful.

    Needless to say, I've already started setting up my classroom.

    Wow, what a tight schedule, Pigeon! They told me I could get the keys to my classroom anytime I wanted them, so I'm super excited to at least have the first 3 weeks of August to get prepared.

    We used to have two days before kids, but one is now a furlough day so we only have one. We were actually told by a union rep that we should not come in on our own time to set up. Let the parents see that the boards aren't done and things are still in boxes. This way people will see how the budget cuts are affecting everyday life in the classroom.

    We start on August 16th, have professional development and work days for a week, and then the kids start on August 23!

    I've been teaching summer school all summer though, so I feel like I haven't really stopped yet. :)
