School year will begin in August.
The Wrentham Elementary School Committee approved a school calendar for the 2012-2013 year at its meeting Tuesday night. The calendar would start the school year on August 28, a few days before Labor Day. District Superintendent Jeffrey Marsden said the schools have been starting their year in August recently because of issues with when the school year would end. "There were districts last year that were concerned their school years would extend through July," he said. "State law doesn't allow that."

Marsden's proposal had no school on November 6, the day of the …
