When does your school year start?

I grew up in a state where school started after Labor Day weekend, which was PERFECT. September. Starting to cool off.

NOW I live in a place where for some reason the new school year starts in the middle of August. I think that's ridiculous. It's still HOT outside, it's still SUMMER. I feel like my children are getting screwed out of 20% of what is technically "summer". When does the school year start where YOU live, and how do you feel about that?

In 16 days on August 5th. 

We are on a modified year round schedule and I LOVE it! They get a break in fall, a break for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks at Christmas, MLK day, a break in February, a week for Spring Break, and then get out at the end of May. They also have a couple of random days sprinkled in that they are off or have half days. They have a full 8 weeks off for summer too.

Summer starts June 21st and ends September 21st. I also think that my boys are "getting screwed out of summer".
