Its starts here on the 21st.
That means traffic will triple in size. I have no idea why the hell we fund school buses when no one lets or makes their kids use them. their little treasures get chauffeured to and from school.I know why, because then they'd have to get the hell up in the morning instead of waiting until the last minute so they can rush around. Its stupid and lazy.
Every day without fail there are accidents at one or the other entrances to the schools around here. People in a hurry to either drop them off and get to work on time or to pick them up to get home.
Its ridiculous. The main artery gets backed up for hours

First day here is Sept 5th, though my youngest has an orientation on Sept 1st because she's going into grade 7 and will hence be at a new junior high school

Personally, I would like to see them stay out.

Here, when school is out no one wants to pay for child care so they "telecommute" to work. Makes the office nice and quiet.

All you have to worry about is sometimes dogs barking in the background. (Where is the kid screaming? Never hear it.)

Commute home is a breeze. No soccer moms running around picking kids from school, delivering to band, soccer, football, baseball practice in the afternoon.
