If you're like me, you grab those school calendar magnets at back-to-school registration like they're gold and refer to them constantly to sync your schedule with the many school holidays that seem to pop up when you least expect them.
Lord knows the kids won't mention it until the last minute. And pray you're not the parent who shows up to an empty school parking lot.
Just this morning I discovered an extra school holiday. Feb. 11 is just "x'd" out as "holiday" along with the 18th, which is the actual President's Day. So why are we off the 11th? My kid has no idea.
If you can't find your magnet or you want an extra copy of the sked to print out and tuck in your planner, here's the 2013 Pleasanton Unified School District calendar.
And here are the rest of the key dates you'll need to know:
March 14 and March 15 — Minimum day conferences
March 29-April 5 — Spring Break
May 27 — Memorial Day
June 14 — Last day/Minimum day
