Family trips shouldn’t dictate schedule

Dear Editor:

The last 20-plus years of my 31 years of teaching in Aspen, I have learned that most parents will do what they want as far as vacations go, with little regard to the established days off. The school calendar should be based on what the school thinks is best for kids.
