    Aug 17th for me, the 26th for the kids.

    I'm still getting used to the idea of a shortened summer break this year. I am teaching summer school July 1-Aug 2, then I have a 4-day (all day) math training August 12-15. I'm getting paid for the math training and I plan to use the money for a plane ticket home for Christmas. I'm still bummed I have pretty much NO summer but I'm hoping seeing my family will make it all worth it!

    August 19th (we teacher are due back the previous Wednesday, the 14th).

    Glad to see that my school isn't unique in such an early start.

    Giraffe! I can't imagine going from Aug. 5 to June 26...with an 8 to 5 time! How crazy is that! (Hoping you get a full hour lunch, since it's nine hours?)

    September 9th for my kids. I have to go back the 3rd and 4th then have a 4 day weekend for Jewish holidays. First time ever in my life (including as a kid) starting the school year on Monday. It's going to be weird.

    My first day back to work will be August 13th.

    My first day with the kids *should be* Monday, August 26th.

    *Should be* is because I'm preggo and due August 19th.

    Even if I have the baby before the 26th, I hope to be there the first day of school. I believe it is important to be there and establish who their teacher is and what I expect of them, even with their LTS.

    Obviously if I have the baby over the weekend (24th or 25th) or the 26th itself, I won't be there the first day. But I would like to make it in at some point that week no matter what.

    My first real day teaching the kids will likely be around Halloween, or the first week of November.

    The kiddos come back on August 12. Since I'm a new teacher and also agreed to attend summer PD, I have meetings starting on July 22. From July 22 to August 9, there are only three days that I'm not in meetings.

    Teachers start Sept. 3rd...kids starts Sept. 9th. We usually start the day before the kids, but because of the Jewish holiday, we have pd on Tues. and Wed., we're off Thurs., and we have our building meetings on Friday. Kids start Monday...but we have off on that Friday for Yom Kippur. It's going to be an interesting start to school!

    In my district teachers go back the 19th and the kids show up the 26th. I think I have to go back a few days before the 19th since I am new to the district.

    Ack...sorry. Not until August! I do have 2 days of PD and a 3 day conference this month though. I can't complain about the 3 days though because my school is sending me to Orlando.

    August 16th is the first day for teachers, and the 26th for students. I plan on heading back the 13th to work ahead. It seems there is never enough time to set up a classroom with all added things during professional development.

    I go back on August 22nd (because I'm new to the district) and kids go back Sept. 5th. The bad part about this is that I'm not finished until June 17th! I'd much rather start earlier and end earlier.

    Aug. 12th is the kids first day, and as of now I'm not aware of anything we have to do before. Although I know I'll be at the school probably almost every day for a while to set up, etc.
