Back to School Checklist

Get ready for the new school year by making sure you finish the list of tasks below. Be present on the first day of school and maintain good attendance throughout the school year. Good attendance means better grades and more achievement.


Calendar
Check your schedule. Most schools start 9/3, but a few start earlier or later. Visit the calendar page and scroll to the bottom to see if your school has an alternative date listed for the first day of school.

Pro tip: The calendar at the top of this page also lists districtwide events and important dates throughout the school year - like the end of each quarter and scheduled days off. Click on the "Subscribe to..." link underneath the calendar to merge the school schedule with your own calendar, so you'll never miss an event or update. 


Shots
Get vaccination records from your doctor. All students are required to have certain immunizations (also known as vaccinations or shots) to attend school. Visit the immunization page to download the Immunization Record Form and to find out more information about requirements. 


Trip
Know your school address and plan your route. The address for every school is located on the schools page. Enter the name of your school into the filter field that asks you to "Search by school name or number" and the tile that appears will have your school address and a blue link for directions.

Pro tip: You can also use the school filter to search all the schools in the district by program or CTE offerings.


Times
Check the bell schedule and be there when it rings. Bell schedules are displayed at the top of each individual school profile page. Some schools have different bell schedules depending on the grade of the student, so be sure to double check the time of your opening and closing bell.



Gear
Get uniforms and supplies. Reach out to your school about specific uniform and supplies requirements for the upcoming year. You can find your school's contact information on the schools page. General information about what is acceptable to wear to school can be found in the code of conduct
