Re: MB reh Aug 1st rule???
Many districts have extended breaks during the year, so they do not get out earlier for summer break.
Respecting the families summer time doesn’t make sense. Schools that have an earlier start date means they get out earlier. Therefore, the summer break can still be the same length.
I for one am fine with it. We need to respect the students summer time and their families. If your school year starts earlier than that's the way it is. Ours started much earlier this year and we were fine. I know of several programs, in 4A and other classifications, that are very successful and have never used as much time for summer band as many of us do. Work efficiently and Max out the time you have.
