Back to School in Volusia County

Only two more weeks and it’s back to school for students in Volusia County schools. This school year marks the beginning of the controversial mandatory uniform policy for all Kindergarten through Grade 12 students attending public schools. Here is a link to the page with information about the uniform requirements.

Time to adjust schedules and get the kids back into the school schedule. It’s always good to start that at least a week or two ahead of time to get everyone back on their necessary schedules. I had four children in four different schools at one point in time and boy was that fun! I’m all for individualism but uniforms would have proved very helpful to me during that time I’m sure. And, you know I love my children but I was very grateful every year when school started back up and I didn’t have to entertain them all 24/7.

Here is a link to the 2016/2017 Volusia County School Calendar.  Let’s get the kids back to school safely and start paying attention in those school zones and around the bus stops please!
