Default Do You Get More Interest After School Starts?

Just curious if business seems to pick up after school starts? I opened the week after school let out and have had several people comment to me that I'll probably have more calls after school starts back. Is this true for any of you?

Here it is usually the busiest the last two weeks of summer, before school starts.

All the teachers and support staff go back to work around then.

Every area may be different, though.

I find that I get the most calls in the first few months of the year. January and February especially. I have no idea why this is or if it's just me but this is how it always goes. I also get a lot of calls the last month before school starts, not really after however.

The phone rings off the hook in the few weeks before school starts and in the few weeks before summer vacation starts.
