Back-to-school open house and information nights in District 196 schools

District 196 elementary, middle and high schools have all scheduled back-to-school open houses, orientation sessions and/or information nights that will be held in August and September. The first day of the 2013-14 school year is Tuesday, Sept. 3.

On Aug. 20 and 21, elementary students will have an opportunity to have a one-on-one meeting at their school to take a literacy assessment. These 45-minute assessment meetings must be scheduled by a parent or guardian by going to the school website and clicking on “Schedule a Summer Literacy Assessment.” Assessment times are being filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Some schools are offering additional assessment times on other days.

For information on any back-to-school events, call the school.
