    • For grades 1 - 12, the first day of school is Thursday, Sept. 1. 


    • Kindergarteners have a different back-to-school schedule. The first day of kindergarten is Wednesday, Sept. 7. Kindergarten teachers will host individual Family Connection Conferences on September 1, 2 and 6. These conferences are a required element of participating in state-funded full day kindergarten.
