Lake Sinclair area school calendars

I can't even believe that it's time for kids to go back to school.  Local schools have start dates ranging from today until August 12, 2016. The Putnam County schools opened today. I couldn't believe it when I saw all the school buses running this morning.  This is really early it seems.  We used to go back very close to the end of August... back in the day.

Gatewood (in Eatonton)

Baldwin County Public Schools

Georgia Military College Prep School

John Milledge Academy

Hancock County Public schools

John Hancock Academy

Be mindful when driving around the lake of school buses, stop even if it's across a divided road and watch for children that just might not be watching for cars. And watch for children that may be waiting near the road in the mornings for the bus to pick them up. As the days get shorter remember that children will be out waiting for the bus before the sun is up.

This is good information for families with kids in school in the area.

Wow - we never start school before Labor Day. Of course, our schools aren't air conditioned, for the most part, so August classrooms would be unbearable!

I can't BELIEVE how much earlier they start now!!  The day after Labor Day was when we always started back and an entire month earlier just seems crazy to me too - especially in the August heat!!

Hey, wait a minute...these kids are being robbed! Isn't it still summer?  I can't imagine having to go back to school until after Labor Day. 

Regardless, I'm sure families appreciate this information, Tammy.  D

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD the difference is that they are out for summer before Memorial Day here.  Frankly I like it.  Kids get spring fever and stop learning in May and it seems to be work better to get out earlier and go back earlier.  The one big issue is the heat for afternoon football practice sessions.  That concerns me

Great reminder that schools are starting Tammy! People need to slow it way down and be alert to little ones darting across roadways on foot or on bikes.

The summer passes by quickly, I am sure the kids are pretty excited to get back to school, see their friends and continue learning!
