When does your school start?

Momma_Bird_OHAugust 14, 2002

School starts for my kids on August 29. I'm curious - when do your kids start back this Fall? Here in my community, each district has a different date, with some schools starting as early as the 14th.

I've got two this year, 4th and K. They start this coming Monday, the 19th.

Some of the neighboring counties here in middle TN started this week. We also have some schools in our district on a year round schedule (they call it "non-traditional"), they started the last week of July.

I am in NW Washington and my kids don't start until September 5--and they didn't finish school until June 19! We have fabulous weather in August though, so I am glad they have the whole month off.

I start September 30th. Kids in Washington (hi sadiesmom!) always start the day after labor day. I don't understand why the west coast always starts and ends later than the east coast.

This year there is a new state law in Wisconsin that requires the first day of school to be after Labor Day so that the high school kids can remain employed in the tourism industry through the holiday weekend!

Our kids start on the 3rd of September, right after Labor day. They usually get out around the 2nd or 3rd week in June. Of course that depends on how many snow days we have. I think the children have to go 178 days of school here in our town. NancyLouise
