Chicago Public Schools has two different school tracks which means they have two starting dates for schools. Traditionally speaking, school begins on Tuesday September 4, 2012. However, the new school track, Track E, starts today, August 13, 2012. Students need to be there! Different schools have different start times. If you don’t know what time your children are supposed to be there, call the school.
There is absolutely no reason why any student should miss the first day of school outside of death or terminal illness (God forbid).
And be sure to tell them that Shorty says to have a great start of the school year.
