We hope you’ve had a wonderful summer full of that perfect combination of lazy days and stimulating travel. Now it’s time to buckle down and get your kids ready for the 180 days of learning spread out from August through June that make up the school year, as per the State of Massachusetts.

If you’re foggy on the details of the upcoming year, such as of what time to show up for example, it’s time to hit up your individual school’s website.
