Copies of Parent will be delivered on a Thursday.

Beginning with the May issue, Columbus Parent is shifting its distribution schedule just a wee bit. Usually the magazine is distributed throughout the first week of a month, starting on Monday and finishing by Thursday. But starting with the May issue, all copies will be delivered on a Thursday (because that's the day when our sister publication Columbus Alive! is distributed and we're taking advantage of those distribution synergies, as we say in the synergy biz).

That also means that our website will be updated with the new issue on that Thursday. So for future reference, these are the publication dates for the rest of 2013: May 2, June 6, July 3, Aug. 8 (with copies to school buildings happening on Aug. 22), Sept. 5, Oct. 3, Nov. 7 and Dec. 5.
