If you lived in Sacramento, your kids would be in school already. We started 8/13. Isn't that insane?

That makes absolutely no sense to me. Do you guys start summer camp in May, or what?

September 6??? How last century!!!

In both of the states in which I have had children enrolled in school, we have had to FIGHT to delay the opening of school to within two weeks of Labor Day.

One year they started on August 9!!! Labor Day weekend felt like Thanksgiving!

This year school started yesterday in a couple counties in Florida, starts tomorrow in Boca and starts next Monday where our house in NC is. The NC thing was only accomplished when the travel and leisure industry lobbied for later start dates due to the negative impact on summer beach revenues.

I'm willing to accept that we can't kick our kids out the door at 9 a.m. and not see them until dinner like our parents could...but I would like school to start after Labor Day.
