Erie weather has been very consistent in the last few years: June is chilly and gloomy and by August, the weather is hot.  Parents want children to return to school AFTER Labor Day to take advantage of Erie's hot August weather (since none of the Erie Catholic Schools have air conditioning).  Why not remain in school for one extra week in June and move the start date to after Labor Day? The Erie City School District has moved to do this as well as the Erie Day School and the Montessori Regional Charter School -- all with positive feedback from parents and students.  

Families would be able to take one last uninterrupted vacation in the latter part of August, local businesses would benefit from one extra week of students/parents flooding establishments, and students wouldn't have to deal with the choppy back to school schedule of a few days on, a few days off, right at the start of the school year. 

Let's move the start date for 2020 to September 8th (the day after Labor Day 2020).
