You don't want to be tardy on the first day of school. It will not make for a good first impression!

It feels as if school just ended a few weeks ago and now we're already talking about when it begins again. Unfortunately, yes. It's something students don't want to hear, but is good news for some parents. This year is going to be different too as compared to last year. Remote learning (for the most part) is not happening this year and most all East Texas school districts are returning to in class instruction.

I'm only bringing up the subject about when school starts this year because while making our weekly trip to Walmart this past weekend with my wife to get the necessities, I noticed something near the back of the store where the office supplies are ... the yellow cardboard boxes full of school supplies on the shelves. Yes, Walmart is beginning to stock up on school supplies in anticipation of the back to school supply shopping rush.

Seeing this had me questioning when school starts. After a quick search on the Google, I realized that there are roughly forty days remaining until the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. With that being said, here's a quick look at when students will be returning to East Texas classrooms:
