Yesterday I contacted my children’s school to find out exactly how this move will effect their schooling. Here is the problem that has me worried; school let’s out here June 17th (5 days later than expected due to snow days). Our move date is set for June 2nd. The new school system school lets out June 17th as well. However, by the time we get down there, DEERS updated, and physicals done, the new school will already be out for the summer, so transferring them from this school to the new school is not an option.
Thankfully, I was told by the Elementary school, that the teachers will be informed in order to make sure their grades are turned in no later than June 1st. However, their report cards would not be ready at that time, so that would need to be mailed to me. Great!
The Middle School, however, has no idea. They said it should not count against us since we are moving due to Military orders, however; they would need to check with the school board to see how this will be handled since typically the last weeks of school are when exams are given.
We’ve never had to deal with this before, as we have always moved during the summer time prior to this PCS. This PCS veteran spouse, just got checked, in the end though, I will be giving the check mate! Grrr…I am ready to get this over with!
