Schools have been pushing their start dates earlier and earlier. Some are starting almost a month before Labor Day, which has lost its place as the last summer weekend.

The calendar may still say it's summer, but kids across L.A. are dealing with the looming threat of school. That's because more public schools are beginning their academic year in August, rather than the Tuesday after Labor Day.
