LAUSD high schools end summer break early

August 8, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Students at several Los Angeles Unified School District high schools are enjoying their last day of summer vacation.Under a new calendar, three schools will start classes on Monday.

Each school will now have 90-day sessions, with six-week breaks in between.

The idea is to keep kids from forgetting information when they're not in class and to help prepare them for state tests.

The schools with the new schedule are Arleta, Sun Valley and Francis Polytechnic high schools.

Eighteen other district schools will start classes next Monday, Aug.16.
