Usually we plan the first day the local kids are back in school and then start school the next day. That day is today. I made our calendar based on the public schools’ draft calendar and never thought about checking it for updates when they released the official calendar. Some time between draft and final, they moved the start and end dates a week earlier. I discovered this on Friday.
So we’re sticking with our start date of the 27th and we’re still going to do (NOT) Back to School Day next Monday. This year we’ll get 6 days off between the other kids going back and us starting up and we’ll finish only one week before they do instead of two. Maybe next year we’ll not even start until after Labor Day.
