There has been a change in the first day of school for next school year, 2019-2020.

The first day of school will be Thursday, August 15, 2019.

Walk-through registration for Birch Grove is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, August 8, 2019. These dates are a full week earlier than school has begun in the past. Please keep these dates in mind when making your summer vacation plans to be sure your student is present on the first day of school. If your student is not present on the first day of school, August 15, 2019, you run the risk of losing their space at Birch Grove.
