I do not think it's fair to keep kids home for half of what should be summer vacation. It messes up family time with family from a different city.
As well as messing up friendly visits, it also messes up children's health. Without full days off mid-summer, kids aren't get-ting enough vitamin D from the sun.
They will also become unhealthy from lack of excercise. Kids will wake up early in the morning and go to school, then come home completely exhausted from schoolwork and be too tired to go outside.
Please let us keep our summers.
