Daily planning models which evolve with encroachment on other daily activities are problematic.  In addition, Civil Time (Twilight) overestimates the length of the day by about 9 degrees of Latitude.  Thinking that you should be working 16 hours a day is one thing, but thinking that those who you teach or who work for you is another.

This spreadsheet model avoids the pitfall and may be helpful ... provided that residents of the NE US even remember the definition of "Summer", of course.
