Ready For School?
Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Tomorrow we go back to school for inservice or professional development. We have to sit through training all day and then have open house for an hour in the evening. It's a lot on our first day back. We have another day of inservice on Thurs. and the Fri. And Mon. We have off. Students come first day on Tues.
Every public school in Michigan has to start with students after Labor Day, it's the state law! This is because Michigan has such high tourist income. They want summer to last as long as it can! Teachers can have their inservice before, but we must have the Fri. And Mon. Of Labor Day weekend off from school.
I have nothing wrong with this. In fact I think it's great! Our state is Great! Great Lakes, Great State!
