Did You Know? It is important that students attend school all day from the first day to the last day of the school year. Here’s How You Can Help Please examine the school calendar carefully. Make special note of the first and last day of school. Make sure all planned vacations end in time for students to attend the first day of school. Make sure that your child has been properly registered a week prior to the start of school if they are moving to a new school. Make sure all vaccinations are up to date and if your child has a life threatening illness (like allergies, asthma or diabetes) be sure the school has medication and an up to date medical care plan on file. Know the last day of school. Do not plan your summer vacation until after school is out. Be aware that if there is a need to cancel school because of weather these days must be made up at the end of the school year.
