Angela Ott, United States8 years ago Comments: I am not in agreement with extending the school year until June 11th for several reasons. As mentioned by others, some families may have vacations planned already or summer camp/daycare for which they have already committed $ for and would presumably lose out on it or pull their child from school. Also, how many teachers are going to be there that day Do any of them have vacations or continuing education planned Will the school district have to pay for subs that day which would add to the already increasing cost for this matter. Changing the calendar midstream is not fair to working families who then have to scramble for daycare. I would've rather they have had school on Martin Luther King Day. Fortunately, I do not need daycare but my kids would've learned more about the significance of this day rather than staying home by themselves while I was at work. Please reconsider the date for the last day of school.
