It is back to school in Iredell County and there are tons of things to organize and prepare for. Clothes, shoes, school tools, book bags, scheduling, orientation and bus routes just to name some of the biggies. This is a hectic time for kids and parents and putting it all together can be daunting. I have compiled some basic information to help get you started in the right direction. (Please note that this information is subject to change – please contact your child’s school to verify all information and schedules).
OPEN HOUSE: Some of the schools held open house in the beginning of August but most are being held next week. Here is a link to the Dates and Times of Open House for Iredell-Statesville Schools.
SCHOOL CALENDARS: The first day of School for Iredell Statesville is August 25th and here is the last revised calendar for Holidays, Early release days and Teacher workdays. You can also view the calendar for the Visual Arts Program and Early College Programs.
BUS ROUTES: Here is a link to the estimated bus routes for Iredell Statesville Schools. Please be sure to contact the school before school starts to verify times and stops because they are subject to change. Be sure to have the kids out there on time and expect some delays until the drivers get used to the schedule.
SCHOOL MENUS: Bag lunch or lunch tray? This is a decision many parents face and is often a topic of many arguments with the child. To help you make the decision a little easier, here is the School Lunch Menus that are planned.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES: Not sure what to buy for the first day of school? Click on the link for your school to locate a suggested list of school tools from many of the class teachers.
I hope this helps you get the year off the a great start and helps you stay organized.
P.S. Don’t forget to make a donation to School Tools in participating stores and businesses to help those children that cannot afford the supplies they need to get off to a great start.
