    Just wondering when everyone starts and ends the next school year.

    For me:

    Start: 9/2 (teachers) 9/3 (students)
    End: 6/24 (students) 6/25 (teachers)

    We have week-long breaks in December and April.

    How about you?

    First day for students is September 2nd, there are no mandatory days for staff before this, although we are all in at least a few days the week before.

    Last day of school for students is June 25th (half-day); last day for staff is June 26th.

    We have two weeks off over Christmas and a week off in March.

    Convocation starts 8/18. Students start 8/22. Students end 6/5 and teachers are done 6/12. Spring Break doesn't start until 4/3, which feels like FOREVER.

    We still don't have a calendar. I'm told this is normal for my new school.
    I know that teachers start August 25 and students on September 2. If I made a guess, June 5 would be our last day.

    My district doesn't give either of those off. I've actually never had President's Day off since becoming a teacher.

    My current district does give November 15 off. And the 16th most of the time, too. :rolleyes:

    Start:
    Staff - August 5th
    Students - August 11th

    End:
    June 12

    We have a week fall break in October, a week for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks for Christmas, and 2 weeks for spring break. Plus the national holidays with 3 day weekends.

    I actually prefer a shorter summer with more breaks throughout the year, so I'm happy about this calendar.

    What?:eek: That's a federal holiday. Do you not teach in a public school? What about Labor Day and Memorial Day?

    Your Union approved a calendar with no MLK Day off?

    Yes, it's public. I've worked in three public schools in this state and we have never had those days off. As far as I know none of the schools around here do.

    The only holidays that I do not have students are: Labor Day (state law prohibits beginning before the Tuesday following Labor Day), Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Day, and Memorial Day.

    Students go to school on Veteran's Day, MLK Day, President's Day, Good Friday and any other holiday.

    Yet November 15th and 16th are days off :tired:

    I am also public and unionized.
