For weeks, 11-year-old Jessie Cuenta has headed off to George Washington Elementary School, envying her teenage sisters who have slept in and watched TV while enjoying their summer vacations.

But when the school year begins on July 31, every school in the Lodi Unified School District will finally be on the same calendar, for the first time in more than 20 years. Washington, Lakewood and Reese elementary schools are the last in the district to switch from year-round school to the modified traditional schedule.

    LUSD did it for $$$$. They were given extra $$ from the state if they were on YRE. The district was gung hoo when they started, stating how wonderful it was. Years later, LUSD is one of the last districts in the state that still implemented YRE.

    Good riddance to C6 and the lack of a quality education it provided. But a balloon release? Whoopie! Sounds like a waste of OUR tax money and school resources.
