Back to school... Westerville schools

Real Living ecard - Back to School

Westerville schools start back on August 17, 2011! 

An article in the Columbus Dispatch says Westerville and Grandview students are heading back to school on August 17, 2011.   That's early. 

It sounds like the August 17 date is about a week earlier than usual for Westerville schools. It will allow seniors to finish the first semester and tests before the holidays, according to the Columbus Dispatch article. 

Here's the Central Ohio school districts calendar - Westerville City School District - Calendars

In 'Districts' start dates also benefit students' written by Charlie Boss of the Columbus Dispatch, an earlier completion of the 2011 - 2012 school year is another benefit of the early start. 

Westerville schools for the 2010 - 2011 school year, last day of school:  

"Westerville - June 7, 2011" 

Short summmer... 

Neighborhoods in Franklin and Delaware counties are within the Westerville City School District boundaries. The state of Ohio announces the school district report cards for the previous year, right around the time that the new school year starts...

I can't believe it is less than a month away before school starts seems like the children just went on break.

Westerville kids get about 2 months and a week this year...  I am not sure if Grandview Heights starts earlier this year or not.  Perhaps it said in the article.  I was at a friend's house who works for the Grandview Heights school district and he told us school was starting early....  Of course we went off on a tangent about when school started when we were kids!   ... back in the good old days...

School in Atlanta, GA starts August 8th, so the 17th doesn't sound so early:-)

All the best, Michelle

Thanks Michelle, We were talking about that yesterday morning.... how in the south school seems to start earlier.  Not all schools in the Great Lakes area are air conditioned, even in 2011.... I would think everything in Atlanta is air conditioned.  Most homes are air conditioned here.  Most public places are but some schools are not always, maybe because they are not typically used from roughly Memorial Day to Labor Day.  I know of a parochial school in Westerville that just got AC a couple of years ago.  It's hard to concentrate when you are miserable.

I like to think of summer vacation lasting through Labor Day, it did when I was real young but I know when I was older we went back to school before Labor Day.
