    I was just curious...when does everyone start work again...if you aren't already?

    I officially start on the 18th of August...but since I am starting a new grade this year and getting a new classroom, I will try and get in as soon as my principal gives me the green light. ;)

    I go back on August 13th and my students start on the 18th. I am new to the school and still waiting for the call that will let me come in and set up my classroom. :(

    Awww Proud...I just hate not having enough time either. I feel so dang rushed. I don't understand why admin. has to wait so long to allow teachers back into their classrooms.

    Thanks for sharing. I hope you get it all worked out soon. :hugs:

    We are to report Aug. 11. Students report Aug. 13. I will be at school all next week on my own time.

    Is it just that you are new to the classroom that you can't get in, yet, or are all teachers locked out for now? We can get into the school at any time during the summer if we are brave enough to disarm the alarm system. Every teacher in my school has a "set the alarm off" story. :)

    Aug 25th for me, Aug 28th for students. I've been in several times this summer to get things situated since I had to move rooms. There is s sports camp going on, so I don't have to worry about disarming the alarm. Plus the custodians have been working like crazy to clean the place.

    I get into my classroom on Friday, August 15 and can't WAIT! The kids come back the 25th. I think I could go in earlier, but I have to keep working this office job until the last minute so we don't skip a paycheck. I hope a week is enough time!

    Our first official day back is the 18th, but we were told today we can come in as early as the 11th. The kids are back on the 25th.

    First official day is the 25th of August. Students start back on the 27th. I am HOPING I can get in by the 18th. I usually take 2 weeks to set up my classroom. That will just give me a week. But I know they are cleaning our hall last this year. If we can't get in by the 18th I'm going to go crazy!

    I have 3 days of workshops/training the week before that.

    And I hope to get together with my team to do some planning this coming week.

    I have the keys to my classroom, but there is still cleaning going on and our AC is controlled by the DO (district) and until they turn it on for teachers to go in, it's really, really HOT and for me personally, most of my things that I've ordered for my classroom are not even here yet. :(

    I am back already. Our first day was July 25th. It was hard to get back into the groove of things. I will be happy though when we get our 2 weeks off in October though after first quarter.

    I go back the 13th, kids come the 20th. I am mad about this because I feel if they are going to start us that early, then they should air condition the rooms.

    I can go to the classroom whenever I want but haven't been able to because it is so hot there. I am NOT looking forward to it.

    Wow! everyone goes back so early here!

    I believe I have to go in on the 28th and then the kids begin on Sept 2nd. Since I teach Kindergarten, the first 2 days are half days too!

    I go on August 4th...kids start on the 6th. We start early to have a week long Fall Break in Oct. and a longer Holiday in December...in my opinion, it is well worth it!

    Teacher workshops begin Aug. 27th and students come back Sept. 2nd. As of right now, our building hasn't been cleaned yet (and we're last on the list) so we're waiting on that to be able to set up our rooms.

    I was supposed to go back on the 18th, but my principal called this morning and asked (well, told) me that he was moving the 2 work days back to the previous week, the 11th and 12th. We are having more RTI meetings, and some expert is coming in those days to help us beef up our reading series. I'm OK with that, since I would have been there anyway. A lot of teachers are there this week because next week is fair and we will all be at the fairgrounds all week. I would be at school this week if I could find a high schooler to take my kids to the pool! I might call in a favor with one of my speech students tomorrow and do some work.

    Students start on the 20th, which is the latest we have started in a long time.

    I can get into my room starting Monday (yay!). We officially report back on the 18th, and the kids come back on the 26th. I can't get over how much more time I'm going to have to set up my room this year! Last year I only had 3 days, and it was uber hectic!

    I go back (well, actually begin LOL, I'm first year) on Aug 18, and the kiddos come in on Aug 25. I doesn't look like I'll have any time for setting up my classroom. I can't get in until the 18 :( we have meetings all that week. I'm nervous, as I don't even know what room I have yet.

    On a brighter side, I hope to meet my mentor tomorrow morning. I'm just waiting for her to email me back. I'm excited :)

    August 18th for me but the 25th for the students. I'm hoping to not have too much PD this year since last year I had to scramble to get my room done!!!

    I've had my keys all summer and there is cooling, evaporative.
    We have had two grade level meetings. I started working in my room Mon., 21st. I go in for 3 or 4 hours every day. Tues., Aug. 5th is first day for teachers and kids start the 11th. We only have a two day fall break in October.

    I officially go back on the 18th, the kids come back on the 25th. I went out to the school today (29th) for 4 hours. I could have went to the school the entire summer. Our custodians or principal don't mind. I have workshops next week Aug.4 - Aug 8. I have CPR/First aid training on Aug. 13th.

    We report on the 18th and the kids on the 20th. I have been dropping in from time to time to do a few things in my room. Two days isn't enough time to get ready.

    Wow! You all start really early. I have to be back on Sept. 2 and the kiddos start the 4th. We can't get into our rooms until Aug. 25, so we have 5 days to set up. But....I've been teaching summer school in my room, so I'm trying to organize things that I didn't get to do before school ended. I'm sad though because my daughter is going away (my baby girl) to college on August
    28th so it's going to be a very emotional time for me.

    Technically, teachers start on August 22nd, but I need to go through a lot of training to learn the technology of an online school, so I'll probably start in another couple of weeks.

    The academic year starts Sept 2, but there's a summer program going on now, so normally there is no "going back" since I don't leave.

    This year I'm taking 5 weeks off--but spending that time student teaching at a different school, lol, so still no vacation for me.
