A Complete Guide To Connecticut School Start Dates

(CBS Connecticut)— It is the time of year when Staples airs its back to school commercial backed by the all-too-fitting tune “The Most Wonderful Time of The Year.”  The clever commercial makes parents laugh and children cringe.


But no matter how badly students wish for summer to never end, back to school is upon us.  Many Connecticut students will be going back to school next week.  In order to ensure that your child isn’t “that kid” who missed the first day of school, below is a comprehensive list of the starting dates of Connecticut schools and links to each district school calendar.


Also, in order to aid your back to school budget, be sure to get your back to school shopping done this week as sales tax-free week will be going on through Saturday.
