Back to School: District Start Dates in Westmoreland County

Westmoreland County custom home builderIf you have children in school, you’ve probably been shopping for new clothes, backpacks, notebooks, and other supplies. It can be a hectic time, and it’s not easy to get kids to transition from vacation mode to a school routine. If you are in the process of designing a custom home, think about adding specific spaces for kids to store school supplies and complete their homework. Creating a functional and comfortable space for homework can help reduce daily clutter and make it easier for children to complete their work. 

We build in new home communities that are located in Westmoreland County’s premiere public school districts. Even if you don’t have kids in school, building a custom home in a high performing school district adds to the value of your investment. Here are the school year start dates for some of our area districts.
