Don't worry about the small stuff. This is small stuff. Just make sure the kids do their homework, neatly if possible, and turn it in on time. And tell them to pay attention their teachers, not their smart phones.

This is exactly the kind of "calendar creep" that I warned about on the school calendar threads back then. So glad our kids have all graduated and we do not have to put up with this nonsense.
I had advocated starting after Labor Day, pushing finals until early February, graduating the 3rd week of June. No finals pressure during holiday break. And (now) no finals pressure up against college application deadlines.
Looking forward to taking beautiful and warm vacations in late August while so many families are now forced to go back to school in the prime of summer.
