Back to school!

When do the kids go back and when did they get out?

Our last day was June 30th (a couple days later than usual due to Labour Day being "late"). They go back Sept 6th. So 9 weeks and a couple days off... seems like a long Summer! This mom is ready for them to go back! Lol

I think its the 6th here too June 30th was our last day too. DD is in Sr. Kindergarten so she wont be staggered in this year. My younger one starts preschool in October.

I have not had any of my kids in school before, so I'm not sure of the exact schedule, but around here it's pretty much the same - off in late June, back in early September (sometimes late August. I remember starting high school on like, August 26th)

This year is DD's first year of preschool! We're not sending her to a pre-K in a school, just a preschool in our area run by a church. I am excited for her, and think she'll have a great year! She's just going 2 half days a week.

Harris will be going to preschool and since he's 2 mornings a week he'll be starting on September 13th.

I saw at my friend's today a note from her son's new highschool and he'll be starting on the 6th but that's because he's grade 9, the rest starts on the 7th.

And then have a long weekend? Weird. Smile Is anyone else in BC? I know they switch to all day, full time kindergarten this year and I'm wondering how it's going to go.

They did this to us the 2009/2010 school year. We started the week before Labour Day... they claimed it was "late" and would mess up the end of the year/etc. Not sure why it never messed things up all the years I went to school :rolleyes: Anyway, there was an uproar and when they posted the potential school year for 2010/2011 as well as this year, they had choices that started after Labour Day as per usual... wanna guess which got the most votes? Yep. The traditional after-Labour Day start Wink

Our school had full-day K last year. I think a bunch of schools did that.

School starts here Tues. after the long weekend. Always. Lol. They only go for an hour, so I don't really count it.

This year we will have a 2 week spring break, and the school day is increased by 9 minutes or something every day. Bummer is that it's at the beginning of the day, have to get up that much earlier haha!
