Students in the Modesto City School District return to the classroom Aug. 10. While the district has nailed down the first day, the rest of the school year is still up in the air.
"Usually, we develop that and we agree to that way before the next school year starts," California Schools Employees Association (CSEA) President Aaraon Castro said.
Sari Wyld, a mother of three, took her 3rd and 1st grader to Franklin Elementary to sign up for an after-school program. Her oldest, Christian, isn't as excited about the start of school year as his mom.
"I don't want to go back to school," he pouted.
Wyld is originally from the Bay area. With her family hours away, planning for her children's care is her only choice.
"I don't have people here to watch my kids," she said.
