This year we go back Aug. 8, students return Aug. 9.  Our district usually starts back around the 23rd of Aug., but they're building a new high school and construction forced a change in the schedule.  Worst part is, we had a really short summer this year, but next year is going to be from May 19 to after Labor Day!  I know that might sound like a good thing to some, but I teach special ed and all those extra days mean only more summer loss for my students.  Why an entire district had to be inconvenienced for the sake of a single school is beyond me.

I go back on the 14th of August, the kids start back on the 20th.  I'm wondering where my summer went?  LOL

We go back Aug. 24 (boo-hoo) and kids come back the 27th. We dont get out again until mid June. Is it just me or did summer just fly by?? I havent even gone on vacation yet? :(

We go back on the 22 with kids coming in the 27th.  Of course, have a meeting next Monday and K orientation on the 15th.  Currently trying to finish up Wikinomics rather than have that 'open' as a book I am in once school starts!  I have had a great summer since my 5 year old granddaughter has really taken off with reading these few months.  As a reading specialist that is always a great moment in time!  We have enjoyed reading to her 4 mo old brother!

Classes don't start for me until August 27th.  I agree, the summer has gone by quickly.  I just got done teaching summer school a mere month ago. 

Is anyone involved in year round school in their system?

We start back on the 27th with kids on Sept. 4.  I've been back over a week working in my room though.

Teachers started back on the 16th; Students not until the 27th.  We have 5 full days of staff development (groan) and NO work days until the end.  I guess the district figured teachers will come in on the weekends and they don't have to pay us!  Yes, I did go in today (Saturday).
