    What Charlie Brown said in the last panel was so true when I attended grammar school. Always started the day after Labor Day. That school now begins (gulp!) two Mondays prior to Labor Day (yesterday). That’s one week earlier than most colleges on the semester system!

    Schools have to start earlier now a days, because there are so many unplanned days off … like unionized teacher strikes, when a couple flakes of snow fall .. or if it gets below 30 deg. F (-2C), or they hold “parent/teacher” meetings all day in the school, or its a national election day, and the schools are used as polling places … the excuses are endless. It was extremely rare for school to be called off when I was a kid .. even if it snowed. Those who could make it, made it .. those who couldn’t .. didn’t. Since I could walk out the gate of my back yard and be on school property, I always “made it”.

    In our city, school starts on the Tuesday after Labor Day. We’re probably the last school district to start, which drives my daughters crazy; they’re looking forward to getting back…especially my younger one, who is starting Middle School.

    I remember living for about 5 years where I could walk out the door, around the back of the house across a small field and be in school. It was pretty awesome because we never had to get up early. No snow, there, though. My dad was military and we were on an AFB in England.

    I remember starting school the day after Labor Day, and still getting done the third week of May. But I also remember that we only got Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving (I taught at one school recently that took the whole week off). We didn’t get Columbus Day (just studied about him that day) or MLK Day or Presidents’ Day (though we had special programs for both Lincoln and Washington in February.

    We always had (gasp) “Easter” Holidays that were the Friday and Monday around Easter.

    But we had no spring break. So I guess the days worked out. We just worked straight through, for the most part, which is why we didn’t have to start school until the “official” end of summer, Labor Day.

    In this part of the country some schools started on Aug. 4! (which is ridiculous, IMO)

    I don’t know if I’ve missed a mention of it, but I read this morning that Donna Wold, Charles Schulz’s ex-sweetheart, the little-red-haired girl who was the inspiration for The Little-Red-Haired Girl in the strip, died earlier this month. Sorry I don’t know how to provide a link to an article at the moment.

    Is it me, or does Charlie Brown watch too much T.V.?

    In places where it still snows we still go. Though the do cancel when it’s over 18 inches of fresh at once or when the temps go low enough that the new classrooms are below 40 degrees.
    .
    Frankly when we lived in Nevada I liked their system the best, good snow meant late start, school still happened, they just gave the plows and the sun a chance. The only time they canceled in 16 years was when it snowed 3 feet overnight.
