But just because the students are no longer in class doesn't mean the district doesn't have a hand in how they spend their summer. A number of summer programs are put on by the schools themselves as well as their respective sports teams to ensure kids have something to do while their not sitting at their desks.
While giving kids an event-filled summer of fun helps to refresh them for when school returns in August, it doesn't hurt for the faculty and staff either.
"I think for me there's always excitement that it's summer time," Olson said. "It's a great time to rejuvenate ourselves, so a little bit of break is always a good thing. It helps us come back excited to start the next school year. And I think about 99 percent of the people who come back are ready to be back at school."
