(PORT ANGELES) In Port Angeles, the 2014-15 school year starts on September 2nd for all eight schools except kindergarteners, who start on September 5th, following three days of orientation. Numerous events will be taking place over the next week, that will help get kids and their parents ready for the school year.
In what could be termed a one-stop-shopping event for parents with kids returning to school, is the “Back to School Event” that takes place on Saturday, August 23rd, and runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Jefferson Elementary School.
The Smile-Mobile, a modern, mobile dental office, will make be at Jefferson Elementary School from September 8th through the 12th.
Due to some changes in guidelines by the U. S. Department of Agriculture and State of Washington, last year's district offered snack program is no longer available. In its place, the district will offer a breakfast program at no cost to the student.
One note of importance for parents and students who are new to the district, is that early dismissal Tuesdays and late start Wednesdays begin the second week of school – Tuesday, September 9 for early release and Wednesday, September 10 for late start Wednesday.
