Students and staff come back to school before hand in preparation for the big first day
In order to be ready for the first day of school, many people in many buildings spend many hours preparing weeks in advance of the big day. Staff and parent volunteers prepare materials for registration, textbooks are unpacked, computer labs are readied, the list of necessary chores goes on and on.
Lake Oswego and Lakeridge high students registered for classes the week of Aug. 22, paid fees and had pictures taken for their student body cards.
The junior high and elementary schools held open house and barbecue events to familiarize students and their families with their schools. Some back to school events are being held this week.
Each school will also hold an official Back to School Night where parents can meet with school administration and staff.
