    public school should start where it can have first semester finished and exams out of the way by christmas break. it is very difficult to come back after cristmas break to take exams. second semester shoud start after christmas. if we start school in this maner it will still give 10 weeks for summer break. spring break should be around easter.

    JUNE 7th – - SERIOUSLY. I thought May 31st was bad. Sounds like they just want to keep the schools open year-round. I hope everyone does go and fill out the survey. They would prefer we sit back quietly, so don’t give them what they want. So far I am NOT loving the new school board, if this is some of their brilliant planning.

    It doesn’t matter what we say, they are going to do just exactly what they want to do anyway.
