And as for when school lets out: I don't know about everywhere else in the U.S., but the trend around here is to start school earlier in the late summer, and to finish earlier in late spring. Our schools are already in session --- just started this week --- and finish in the first week of May. This year, the kids were already out of school when Avengers came out.
