    Red face Fairfax County Schools Letting Out Early

    For summer break. I am sure my esteemed Canadian Collegues will get a kick out of this one....

    Fairfax County Students Could Get Jump Start To Summer Vacation

    FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. -- Students in Fairfax County could be getting an early start to their summer vacations.

    For most schools, the last day of classes is supposed to be June 17, but officials said, that could soon change to June 13.

    The Fairfax County School Board is expected to vote Thursday night on whether to shorten the academic calendar by two days.

    Teachers will still be at school until June 17, but many said they need the extra time for planning purposes and to wrap up the school year.

    But the change could force some parents to scramble for child care.

    The change will not effect many elementary school students in Fairfax County. The last day of school will remain June 17, while teacher work days will be June 18 and 19, school officials said.

    However, some secondary school students are getting the biggest break, with the last day for students being May 30 and the last day for teachers being June 2 and 3.

    School officials said they are considering shortening the school year because many of this year's snow days were not used.

    Some exceptions to the changes are Braddock Elementary School, Cunningham Park Elementary School, Flint Hill Elementary School and Wolftrap Elementary School. These schools will have there last days on June 16, News4's Tracee Wilkins reported.

    I wish Montgomery county did that...Charles county, MD lets students out early if they dont use all their snow days...In montgomery county you could have all the snow days left and still get out on X date...But if you use one more snow day than you have you go to school an extra day to make up for it.
