Back to school start time for SD20

Class in session: school starts Tuesday, Sept. 3 for those in School District 20.

It was be a shortened day for students (buses will run accordingly) which will allow students an opportunity to become acquainted with their school, while at the same time enabling teachers to finalize their preparations for Wednesday, Sept. 4, the first full day of instruction.

Kindergarten students will have gradual entry over the first week and a half, so please contact your school for those times.
