Wondering about some back-to-school information?

It's still summer, but back-to-school to-do's are on parent's minds.

Speaking of elementary buildings, vote for which l. 

Here's the back-to-school schedule:

  • Eighth, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students return Aug. 24 (Friday).

Gee, how nice of them to tell us what's going on SIX DAYS before the start of school. Am I the only parent driven nuts by this? At Echo Hills, the supplies needed are by classroom, not by grade, so we generously get four days until open house night to make a mad dash for school supplies. Forget watching the sales!

Exactly! I think it's crazy for families that have to arrange care!! Especially for kindergarten: families have no idea whether their kids are morning or afternoon OR EVEN WHICH BUILDING they'll be in this year. And paying for all-day doesn't solve the problem, either, as we don't know until the last minute which building they're in, either.

I already have my child's list for Echo Hills. It's on the website. As far as school supplies, I buy them anyway (pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, crayons, scissors et al) because it is such a great deal. If I wind up not needing them, then I donate them. Just something to consider.

Some of the daycares provide transportation themselves; I see vans from several daycares at Echo Hills on a regular basis.

IM: yes, the supply lists are up, but they are BY TEACHER, not GRADE. I guess I could sit down & compare lists and buy the things that are the same, and THEN go out at the last minute to get whatever is left... but doesn't that seem a BIT inconvenient to you? It does to me. Which is why I'll wait until class lists are posted.
