BALDWIN — On Wednesday, Aug. 14, parents rushed their kids to Baldwin Community Schools for the first day back.

The school day began at 8:15 a.m., with a brief back-to-school assembly and breakfast before kids headed back to their classrooms to begin learning.

The week-late start to the year came after a schedule change that is intended to make things easier on parents, students and teachers, Superintendent Rick Heitmeyer said.

While Baldwin began later than usual this year, other area schools will begin as previously planned in late August.

Morley Stanwood Community Schools, Evart Public Schools, Reed City Area Public Schools and Crossroads Charter Academy’s first days will take place the week following Baldwin, with MSCS’ first day on Tuesday, Aug. 20, and the other districts following on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Big Rapids Public Schools will have their first day on Monday, Aug. 26, and Chippewa Hills School District’s first day will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
