Later start date for students to return to school

This petition had 234 supporters


The students and teachers of Mecklenburg County should not be forced to return to school at the early start date of August 9th. Education is a necessity to thrive in an ever-changing world, however, having an adequate break from the classroom is equally important.  Kids and teachers need time to enjoy their lives-with family, vacations, camps, or simply spending the day on our lake. We live in a climate where 100º days are common in the summer-especially in August. Returnng to school after Labor Day allows kids to enjoy summer, be kids, and get the best education of all-life.
