I think families should have more summer months with their kids to be able to enjoy the warm weather, the warm weather is when families can actually get out and enjoy the summer. Put back the traditional summer schedule where kids went back in September!!!

We need to spend our hottest days and summer on break. Its insane as an adult trying to focus, work and stay active through hot days...this is torture for a student and staff. I personally recall as a child having anxiety on hot days at school, feeling at my worst when June came around. I got through it with one thing in mind "one more week and school will be over, you can keep strong". No child/student should feel miserable if we can make it better in the hotter days of the year (August). Not to mention rooms with no AC at school. I've heard stories from my child how horrible she felt in class going from one class having AC to another class with no AC. Not to mention the AC blasting in one class followed by a hot walk through the school, plus attending outdoor garden class or physical ed. Another story from a family member said all Physical ED classes were to stay inside the GYM due to the extreme heat outdoors and warning alerts. With no space for them to do anything in the GYM, but sit around all day for a few days. Lets prevent sick days arising, miserable moments, torture in the heat and Staff/Students unhappy.

I'm signing because the school calendar makes no sense. School should run later through June and end after Labor Day...like almost every other school district in the country.

Morina is abusing her use of this petition for summertime hours at LAUSD in the guise of "updates " regarding the most critical school board elections and most expensive in US history. Please report her misuse of this list and revoke her privilege to have access to almost 2500 names for her personal agenda. I did NOT sign a petition for any school board political election. Her decision to use this list is abhorrent. You have been reported Morina.

This was horrible, unnatural and thoughtless from the beginning.

I have children in grades 2 and 4. Let's go back to the school schedule where students and families can enjoy a real summer together. There are many ways to do this if you really care!
