It’s Time to Go Back to School, When Does Your Parish Start?
Yes, it might seem like we are just remembering the kids getting out of school in May on their last day, and while it wasn't that long ago, the weeks seem to have flown by.
The time is swiftly moving to when we will have to drop our children off at school or see them off at the bus stop. And it's also that time when we are trying to figure out how we are going to pay for all of the things our children need.
It's time to think about school uniforms for your children, and you'll have to get all of the supplies that are on each child's list.
At this point, many parents decide to start having their children get into somewhat of a more normal sleeping pattern, especially during the week. It's basically time to think about going back to all of our school routines.
Students in Acadia Parish will be returning to school on Monday, August 14, 2023. The first three weeks of school will be the traditional five-day school week.
With the transition to a four-day school week things will be somewhat different. Back in January 2023, the Acadia Parish School Board voted for the four-day week. Monday will be a non-instructional day according to their website. The four-day week will begin after Labor Day on Monday, September 4, 2023.
