when does school start fall 2011?

I'd like to know when the schools start in the area, so we can visit Storyland and Santas Village when it isn't so busy, but before they close on the weekdays. Thank you!

http://www.storylandnh.com/directions.html are the hours for Story Land. I would think it wouldn't be the local school age children causing the crowds of children at the parks, but the visitors. School starts on August 31 in Conway

Sep 1 through the 5th would be your best bet if you want less crowds, open 9am to 5pm.

But we have been going to Storyland with the Grandkids over the last 3 or 4 years during August and really never hit huge lines; the park is run rather well.

We have been going to Santa's Village for many years and we never feel like it is crowded even when the parking lot is full and you need to park across the street in their second lot. It looks like there may be way too many people with all the cars but it never feels crowded to us once we are in the park. The lines are pretty small except on the really busy days where there might be lines for the family Sleigh Ride (where they take your photo during the ride), the bumper cars and the line to see Santa. Later in the afternoon, many of the operators allow the kids to remain on the ride if they want to take a second ( or third or fourth..) ride since there are no lines.

Enjoy!
