will start on Thursday as well, but the first day for 6th graders
isn't until Friday. Thursday is reserved for 6th grade family
conferences, easing the transition from elementary to middle school.
elementary schools, across the district 1st through 5th
graders will start on Friday, with family conferences being held on Thursday.
Summer runs a bit longer for any soon-to-be kindergarteners. Their first day of
school is August 30, giving them a little more time to prepare for the academic
adventure that awaits.
schools will follow the same pattern as town schools, with all secondary grades
beginning on Thursday, followed by elementary grades on Friday.

Monday, August 27, wrapping up with a three day weekend in observance of Labor
