Cros-Lex Year Round Students officially start July 8

(CROSWELL-LEXINGTON) -- School will be in session for some Croswell-Lexington students beginning July 8. The district's year-round waiver was approved by the state this spring, giving parents a choice between the traditional calendar or year-round. Students in grades Kindergarten through 6th that opted to attend year-round will start July 8 after a 3-week summer break. Superintendent Dr. Kevin Miller says the district has a special day planned for the year-round students and their parents on the first day. Summer classes will be held Monday through Thursday. Those students will see a 4-day Labor Day weekend and be back in school for 2-weeks before a 2-week break in September. Year-round students at Cros-Lex have a week off for Thanksgiving, 3-weeks off for Christmas break, and 3-weeks off in the spring. Superintendent Miller says there will be two sections in Kindergarten through 4th grade and during the summer all classes will be held in the middle school. Daycare will be available during the intercession days at a cost of $10 a day. Superintendent Miller says the program will be structured like a day camp with field trips and learning. Over 250 students are signed up for the year-round option and the district is accepting applications through May 1. Superintendent Miller says there is still space in the 6th grade classes.
