Our Back to School Checklist is here!

June 17, 2022

We hope you are enjoying summer break! Below is a checklist with information to help with planning for the new school year in the fall. This page will be updated with additional information as it becomes available.

The biggest change that families need to be aware of is that there will be a charge for all school meals beginning on the first day of school, Aug. 31. The USDA waiver that allowed school districts to provide free breakfast and lunch expires at the end of this school year. For the 2022-23 school year, families will be charged regular prices for school meals, with free/reduced price meals for qualified families. Free/reduced meal applications for the 2022-23 school year will be available Aug. 1 on Skyward (Family Access).

School summer hours

  • Primary and middle school offices will close to the public for summer break starting June 23. High school offices will close to the public starting June 29. All school offices will reopen with limited hours Aug. 8. Visit the School and District Hours webpage for specifics.
