Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

First Day of School around Cedar Creek Lake


August 1st is tomorrow and many families in the area are gearing up for local school districts doors to open up for the always anticipated first day.

Every parent also knows what is coming with the hustle and bustle of the daily mornings getting ready and the traffic that comes with the early starts for us and our children.

Athens to the East of us starts the earliest on Monday, August 5th, starting their pilot program that includes a 4 day instructional week. The program, will last for the next 3 years.

Trinidad, Malakoff and Mabank start Wednesday, August 14th with Eustace and Kemp resuming classes Wednesday, August 21.

What will Cedar Creek Lake look like this year with the population growing at a steady average of around 1.5% each year and how will it effect the everyday life of the locals. Will it be a madhouse? The first week is presumably going to be, as we all get back into our normal routines that help the flow of life during the school year.

Tax free weekend is also coming up Friday August 9-11.
