Ahh, summer is just around the corner. Kids in Austin Independent School District have a four day weekend, before heading back to school for three whole days next week. Bastrop does the same but ends next Wednesday. Round Rock has school on Friday, not on Monday and finishes next Thursday. Leander goes to school on Friday, not on Monday, but Tuesday-Friday next week. Hays will be in school Friday, not on Monday and finish on Wednesday. And lucky Eanes starts summer vacation on Friday.
Are you as confused as I am? Check
your district’s calendar before doing anything.
