When does your school start? Classes begin this week for some local students

The first Dayton-area students will return to K-12 schools this week, with a handful of local charter schools at the head of the line. All local schools plan a full in-person approach this year, although COVID-19 safety protocols remain in place to varying degrees.

The dates below show the first day of classes for students, with some schools bringing back different grade levels on different days. Also, kindergarten classes often start on a different day than grades 1-12, so check with your local schools for that information.
