As summer begins to wind down, it is time for all of us to begin preparing for the 2013-14 school year. Below you will find some resources to help you prepare for the first day of school on August 26th.
The start date of August 26 marks two significant changes for CPS – the creation of a unified school calendar and the decision to begin school before Labor Day. The shift from a two-track system to a single calendar will allow all CPS students to start school together on Monday, August 26. All students will also have the same end date and days off, which will simplify planning for CPS families.
Charter schools: Each charter school has its own start date. Contact your child's school to confirm his or her first day of school.
It is important for you and your child to be prepared for his or her first day of school. Parents can spend the summer months gathering all the supplies your child will need to start the school off right. Making sure your child attends classes on time every day and is well supplied with the recommended supplies will put them in the best possible position to perform well in school.
The first day of school is Monday, August 26th, 2013.
