Starting school here when it was 130 degrees out last summer was crazy. Not to mention there is no air conditioning on the buses! On ther other end back east should start early because they get so cold and have snow Days. It should not go by the fun the kids need but instead what is best for them to learn.
The most consecutive days I remember having worked was 15 and most consecutive double shifts I remember pulling was four. After each of those, though, I could feel my mind beginning to go and I had to take a day off. (When you start having dreams about singing bears in pirate ships, you've been working Magic Kingdom West too hard.)
