The first day of school is just around the corner for many students on South Whidbey.

School is set to begin on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 5 for students in the South Whidbey School District. That includes South Whidbey Elementary School, South Whidbey Middle School and South Whidbey High School.

This is the first school year since Langley Middle School was voted to close in January. Grades seven and eight are now at the high school, and grade six is at the elementary school’s south campus.

Grades 1-8 at the Whidbey Island Waldorf School are also kicking off the year on Tuesday. Lori Barian, an administrator, said the first graders will participate in a “Rainbow Bridge” ceremony to “welcome” them to the school.

Kindergarten is mixed ages at Waldorf. Kindergartners who will be first graders next year begin school on Wednesday, Sept. 6. The rest of the kindergartners at Waldorf start on Sept. 11, including kindergartners at South Whidbey Elementary School.

Starting times for the Island Christian Academy could not be confirmed by press time.
