As February vacation winds down with snow showers in the forecast for four out of the next seven days, some are wondering when the Lexington Public Schools are scheduled to let out for summer vacation.
As February vacation winds down and we head into a weekend wherein forecasts are calling for up to another foot of snow, it seems like an appropriate time to peek ahead at when the 2012-2013 school year might end. According to the Lexington Public Schools most recent calendar, published last Wednesday, Feb. 13, the tentative final day of school will be Friday, June 21. Planned makeup days, if needed, will be June 24, 25 and 26. And the Lexington High graduation, meanwhile, is scheduled for Sunday, June 9. Of course, this is all subject to change. And possible snow showers are in the forecast for four out of the next seven days.

Your kids may be counting the days until summer vacation, but they may also be sad to leave their friends and a routine they have come to rely on.
Ah, the end of the school year. Those half-focused, spring days filled with picnics, field day games and endless hours looking for those unreturned library books. It's time to wrap up the school year, say goodbye to our favorite teachers and promise your kids they will see their friends all summer. It’s a love hate relationship really: the kids love to be out of school and you hate to think of all of the activities you’ll have to line up to keep them occupied. But as much, as kids say they love this time of year, I think there is a little bit of dread too. Think about it. Your kids see their friends daily, learn (hopefully) fun and interesting things and get used to a routine they can rely on. In an otherwise uncertain world, this is your …
