Hi and Lois Sunday page, September 2, 2007.
It seems like school starts earlier every summer. Many districts have students return to classes during the last two weeks of August, while others don’t begin until early September.
We did this Sunday page nine years ago when shopping for supplies on Labor Day weekend didn’t seem so far fetched. I’m sure many parents with school-age kids did this a long time ago. If so, we hope this scenario reflects your experiences. The price tag for supplies probably hasn’t changed much but college tuitions have gone way up. Which makes this gag even more relevant today.

Although many students have already returned to school, most go back in the next two weeks. The final days of summer vacation mean different things to different people, as this Sunday page demonstrates.
Dot is a very studious young girl who does her homework on time, gets straight “A”s on her report card and actually looks forward to going back to school in the fall. Ditto doesn’t get as good grades as his sister and dreads the thought of being cooped up in a classroom again.

To conclude our coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, we searched back in our archives for strips from previous years. In addition to the extensive 1996 series, which ran during the Summer Olympics in Atlanta (see previous two posts), we found the Sunday page above, which appeared during the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
