"in summer" is also correct. "We do not go to school in summer" should be accepted. Reported on Nov. 19, 2017.

Why is 夏 by itself summer but we still have to write 夏天 ?

I suppose is to avoid misunderstandings with many other homophones in Chinese. There are a lot of examples like this: 干燥,衣服,付款,计算,洗澡 ecc.

Last question ”这里在冬天下雪吗“ uses 在 before the season. Can this be omitted as is the case for this question?

The, is not needed in this sentence and is awkward when used.

Why is it not 在夏? would that mean the same thing?
