All the dates you need to know before your kids head back to school

The first day of school is August 15th, but the preparation will start as early as this week. Here's what you need to know.

This post is sponsored by Merrifield Office Supply—did you know you can have Merrifield handle all of your school supplies list for less than what you can get at those other stores? Plus, they’ll deliver to your school in time for Meet The Teacher Night! Fill out the form online here!

(SPS) – Soon it will be time to set your alarm and get to bed earlier so you can wake up and get your kids off to school.

Summer is coming to a close as the first day of school quickly approaches on Aug. 15.

Before the students return though, there are pictures to be taken, Chromebooks to be checked out, paperwork to be completed, school supplies to be purchased, teachers to meet, and schedules to be picked up. Below is a list to help you plan for the first day of school.
