It's that time again
By PAULETTE LASH RITCHIE
Summer vacation winds down this week with the return of teachers Monday. Students start Aug. 12. This special section will provide students and parents with the information they will need to be ready for the first day of school.
This section is a wraparound and can be pulled away from the rest of the Citrus Times section to be saved for reference.
The school district will have a hot line for parents that will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 5 through Aug. 9 and Aug. 12 through Aug. 16. The hot line number is 637-2233. Eight lines will provide information for any school in the public school system.
In this section and in the main Citrus Times, look for information about dress codes and uniforms, breakfast and lunch choices for the first week, information about reduced or free lunch, calendars, orientation times and dates, school administrators, addresses, telephone numbers, and student and teacher hours. Lists of district administrators and school board members are provided as well.
Registration requirements, general school facts, extended day care information and a list of the county's private schools are in this section.
Bus route information can be found on the Times' and school district's Web sites. The Times site is www.tampabay.com/schoolbus. The school system site is www.citrus.kl2.fl.us. Bus information also will be available at orientations and on the hot line.
Important health and medical information regarding school district and state requirements is included in this wraparound.
Have a great school year!
