School starts in less than a month, and now is the time to begin preparations for the return to the classroom.
The School District of Palm Beach County has created a Back-to-School web site with everything families need to get ready to return to district schools. Located at www.palmbeachschools.org/backtoschool, the site is a one-stop-shop with information on finding your school and registering, health requirements and immunizations, applying for free and reduced-priced meals, this year’s student and family handbook, an introduction to the new regional superintendents, school times, calendars and back-to-school news.
“Whether you’re a parent ready to get the kids back to school or a student not wanting the summer to end, the countdown clock is posted for everyone to view,” Chief Communications and Strategic Engagement Officer Amity Chandler said. “As for our schools, we can’t wait to welcome our students.”
The Education Network, the district’s TV station, has posted videos to the site that address frequently asked questions about the start of school, as well as safety tips for drivers and students.
School supply lists are available on each school’s web page, which is searchable from the Back-to-School page. Bus routes will be posted on Aug. 10.
The page will be updated daily as more information becomes available. For more info., follow the School District of Palm Beach County at www.facebook.com/pbcsd and Twitter @PBCSD. Back-to-School photos and comments posted by parents and students using #BTS2016 and #PBCSReady will also appear on the page.
