On Tuesday, Issaquah parents will whisk their children off to school, symbolically bringing an end to the long summer nights.
A late Labor Day means school starts Sept. 1 this year.
After dropping the kids off at school, you might feel the urge to kick back, relax and enjoy some “me” time. You deserve it after a long summer keeping the young ones entertained.
