The inevitable is almost here.

In just three weeks, summer vacation will conclude for thousands of local students who will begin packing their backpacks and getting ready to get back to the books.

But before students spend any time in the classroom, parents should note a few important dates.

Many area schools will host preparation days and expect important objectives to be completed before the first bell of the 2016-17 school year rings.

Parents of public school students are encouraged to register their youngsters before Aug. 1 at the Lincoln Parish School Board Office.

Lincoln Parish Early Childhood Center and Dubach School pre-kindergarten students and Choudrant Elementary, Dubach School, Glen View Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary and Simsboro School kindergarten students’ parents will be notified soon about their children taking Individual Student Screenings from Aug. 12-17.

Choudrant Elementary first- through sixth-grade students and A.E. Phillips first- through eighth-grade students will report to school for a half day from 7:50-11:10 a.m. Aug. 12. A.E. Phillips will notify kindergarten students on their schedule.

I.A. Lewis sixth graders will attend Prep Day at 6 p.m. Aug. 4 at the school.

Ruston High School freshmen will report from 7:45-11:25 a.m. Aug. 12 to RHS’s auditorium.

RHS will also host Prep Week from 8:30-11 a.m., Aug. 1, Aug. 2, Aug. 3 and Aug. 4 for seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen, respectively. Seniors will be required to pay a $10 graduation fee in addition to their $20 homeroom fee.

Cedar Creek School will host a dual enrollment parent meeting from 6-7 p.m. Aug. 8 and new student, freshman and sixth grade and new parent orientations will be held from 2-3 p.m., 3:30-4:30 p.m. and 6-7 p.m., respectively, on Aug. 11

Bethel Christian School will host an open house at 6 p.m. Aug. 11.

Lincoln Parish Schools will return Aug. 15 with the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students returning Aug. 24. Cedar Creek starts back on Aug. 18 while Bethel Christian also returns Aug. 15.

So get started on the right foot by remembering important deadlines and meetings.

As always, we wish every Lincoln Parish student a safe and fantastic year.
