And we’re back.
Today marks the first day of the 2014-15 school year for nearly 4,000 students enrolled at IUSD’s four year-round sites.
Plaza Vista School, Vista Verde School, Westpark Elementary and Woodbury Elementary all start up during the summer but take three lengthy breaks during the year. The idea is to give families the choice of an alternate calendar, but Irvine’s year-round schools still offer the same number of instructional days as IUSD’s other campuses.
Speaking of which, the first day for students on the traditional calendar is Tuesday, Sept. 2, which also marks the opening of the new Cypress Village and Portola Springs elementary schools. By that time, year-round students and staff will be approaching their fall recess, which starts Sept. 22.
