  • Summers off. I live on the beach so Id be upset if dd wasnt able to go with me. Before I moved here full time Id come down on weekends. Those were the best days of my life

  • Love having summers off! We can enjoy the beautiful days & do more things together as a family. BBQ's, swimming, Cedar Point, etc., The break from daily homework, packing lunches, etc is nice too. (And my dau does the library summer reading program so her brain doesnt completely shut down! -lol)

  • Summers off. My kids go to sleep away camp where they learn independence and things you can't learn in a classroom environment. They do need breaks to explore other things.

  • Year round school. They several vacations throughout the year, and they get a lot more accomplished in school.

  • summers off. we like to go to museums, outings, parks, and the library in the summer. They're more to learning than can be found at school.

  • year round. they loose so much and have to spend so much time reviewing last years work when back in school. they still get the weekends plus breaks so its not that big of a deal. you can still go to museums and beaches and parks and libraries that shouldnt stop any of that. i hope you are still doing all that during the school year now, at least i know we do.
