Schools starting before Labor Day
Date posted - February 22, 2014
I see Sheldon will start school in mid-August and most of the schools in NW Iowa will do so also. What is the reason for cutting off the summer break so early? We barely had a summer last year and when it starts getting hot, the kids are back in school. Most of the schools are without air conditioning and when it is that hot, that is all they can think about. Why not start after Labor Day and if need be, go into June when the weather is still cool.
