Here are Vernon Parish school calendars from previous years:

In reviewing the calendar I couldn’t help but notice that school starts a week earlier this year, yet it ends on the same time.  At first glance it appears to me that we’re getting an extra week of school this year.  I wish things would turn the other direction, where summers are longer and school session is shorter. I think school should start the day after Labor Day and get out on May 25. What do you think?
