The bane of summer-loving kids everywhere is fast approaching.

The first day of school is just weeks away at local schools. Most Lebanon County school districts are welcoming students back into the classroom on the last Monday of August, while one district is giving students an extra week of summer vacation before opening its doors.

The Public School Review website reports that public schools in Lebanon County will serve 19,372 students in the coming academic year. (There are also 1,651 students in the county’s private schools, most of which are small Amish- or Mennonite-run facilities, the website notes.)

According to various district and school websites, here are the dates when classes will resume in Lebanon County:

Monday, Aug. 28

  • Annville-Cleona School District
  • Cornwall-Lebanon School District
  • Eastern Lebanon County School District
  • Lebanon School District
  • Palmyra Area School District

Tuesday, Sept. 5

  • Northern Lebanon School District

Two local parochial schools are also resuming classes on Monday, Aug. 28, as is the countywide trade school.

  • Lebanon County Career and Technology Center
  • New Covenant Christian School
  • Our Lady of the Cross

Lebanon Valley College opens its residence halls to new students on Thursday, Aug. 24. Classes at LVC will also begin on Monday, Aug. 28.
