The wall calendar may show it’s only the first week of August, but the first day of school is right around the corner! The first day of the 2015-2016 school year is Monday, August 24, 2015.

To help families prepare, the District has created the annual Back to School section on its Web site, www.leeschools.net/backtoschool, and on its branded app, available in the App Store for Apple devices and the Play Store for Android devices. The Back to School section contains links to the most requested and popular areas of the Web site. From lunch menu information to school supply lists to school bell times to registration information – it’s a one-stop-shop for all the Back to School information families need.

The goal is to provide as much information in one, centrally located and easy-to-use place as possible. However, if there is anything that a family is looking for but cannot find in the 2015-2016 Back to School section, they should contact their child’s school directly as that is the best source of information for each school.

To download the District’s app and access Back to School information on the go, families should search for “Lee County Public Schools” in the app store for their device. The app is free and is black and gold in color.

The District will be trending our Back to School activities on Facebook and Twitter using #LoveLeeSchools. We look forward to seeing photos of our students and their families as they prepare for the start of the school year.

In case you’d like to tweet it – “@LeeSchools Back to School section now live on website! Students return to school on 8/24. #LoveLeeSchools”
