I know it's different everywhere, regarding when school is out for the summer. We are officially out here, we don't go back till mid August. We start mid August and end mid May, or end of May. We were a little later getting out this year because we had snow days, which are rare here. Some states go year round, as I understand..how is it where you live?? I like the schedule the way it is now in my state, as I have the weekends off, the holidays off and the entire summer off. If we went year round, we wouldn't have the lengthy summer time.
