Different year. Same topic.
The 2016-17 school year concluded yesterday for public schools in Hawaii. Students was given a whopping 72 consecutive days off until the next school year starts.
I evaluated the 2017-18 public school calendar, and as always... it's not ideal. For example:
School starts on August 7, 2017 -- the hottest month in Hawaii.
Winter break starts on December 22, 2017 -- just two days before Christmas Eve.
Spring break and Kuhio Day runs from March 17-26, 2018. Students will only attend school for three-days before they have a three-day weekend.
