Kids not seen outside playing anymore

Since the students completed school in May, I have seen absolutely none of them as I go about town. No children are on bikes, chasing after each other, playing hop-scotch on the sidewalk, or climbing.

Does this seem strange to anyone else? The only explanation I have received is that they are playing with high-tech games or watching TV inside the house. Surely not!

Is there not another explanation?
