First Day of School for Colonial School District Set for September 4th

It feels like school just started and the Colonial School District has already set the date for the opening of school for the 2018-2019 school year. The school board voted last night to make Tuesday, September 4th opening day. The reasoning for determining it so early is to provide parents the opportunity to plan vacations.

Here is the announcement:

The Colonial Board of School Directors voted unanimously to establish Tuesday, September 4, 2018 as the start date for the 2018-2019 school year. The vote came at the Board’s monthly business meeting on October 17. The Board generally sets the start date of the following school year early so that parents may plan vacations. The Board will consider the entire school year calendar this winter.
