    Many of my neices and nephews (scattered cross country) have started school already. So, my kids were wondering, when does everyone else start?

    We start Sep. 1 :( Summer has been zooming by!

    We start Aug. 19th. My daughter made the comment last night, "Ugh..only 8 more days until school starts." Summer did fly by!

    September 6th (ish!) although we broke up July 3rd which many of you would consider 'late' ...

    Well, we got out June 21, which was only 3 days later than anticipated (we have to make up snow/flood days).

    Sept 7th. Always the day after labor day. Michigan has a new law not allowing public schools to start before Labor Day because it hurts our tourism industry:)

    The semester for me starts August 31st and ends December 16th. I've been out since mid-May; didn't take summer classes.

    The public schools here start August 23rd and were released on June 3rd.

    Our district starts Aug. 23 and gets our mid June. They have two weeks for Christmas and the entire week of Thanksgiving. I think they were having problems getting substitutes for teacher's wanting the Wednesday of that week off, so they started taking the whole week off.

    My son starts our local community college on Aug. 18. His brother starts his junior year at a Cal State University around Sept. 23.

    As a kid (when dinosaurs roamed the Earth), I remember starting the day after Labor Day. To me, that's the end of summer.

    We started Wednesday Aug 11 2010.... our summer break started June 3rd I think. That was over a week later than scheduled b/c of snow make up dates.

    NYC is scheduled to go back on September 8th, for just 1 day and then they are off again for 4 days (Jewish Holidays). So people try to get the school start pushed back to September 13th. I heard rumors that it worked already for Elementary School, we will see what happens. We are planing for September 8th.

    Mine start next Tuesday the 17th, they got out June 10th....summer was short this year. They don't feel ready yet but I'm starting to. The biggest complaint is that the pools all close when school starts and it's SO HOT here.

    We start August 30th. This summer felt so short since, because of all the snow days they were in school until June 15th.

    My kids go back Aug 18th, I go back tomorrow. Dh has three days of the kids before they go back to school.. that should be interesting! We got out June 4th, we had snow make up time but they had already made it up before school got out. (added 37 mins to each day for two weeks)
