September start better for break

To the Editor,

Re: Teachers derail two-week break, May 2.

Those parents and kids who are “disappointed” that there won’t be a two-week March break are misguided. Most parents I’ve spoken to are against the idea of a longer break.

I think both the teachers and the trustees agree a two-week spring break is disruptive to the children academically.

It would be best not to cut class time at all, but why can the school year not start a week later in September when the weather is good and it does not interfere with the academic learning of the students?
