What Summer Vacation?

Middle school teacher Miss Bluebird reports:

Despite the fact that most everyone seems to think that teachers are sitting around drinking margaritas on their back deck or at a far-off beach all summer long, I'm sitting here at my computer working up rubrics, and assignments, and all sorts of things so we can hit the ground running on August 3rd, when school starts up again. ... Come to think of it, I could use a margarita after all this work.

August 3rd?
