When is the first day of school?

September 1, 2021.

WEB and LINK days traditionally help students entering grades 6 and 9 make an easier transition into their new school community. Middle and high school staff will work with student leaders to plan this programming and will send all first-day details directly to families. All families with students in choice schools and special programs will also receive first-day details directly from their administrators.
