Back to school reminders


For Island school students, August’s hot beach days and the Ag Fair are a harbinger of summer vacation’s end. Only three weeks from today, on Thursday, September 2, freshmen are due at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School for a half-day orientation session from 7:40 am to noon, to give them a head start before everyone else returns. There will be no school on September 3.

Opening day for all public schools and the Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School is Tuesday, September 7, following Labor Day weekend.
