Orientations and Open Houses

Where is my child's bus stop? How can I join the PTA? Is there an after-school program? The answers to these and other questions can be found at open houses and orientations scheduled the week before school begins.

All early childhood centers, elementary schools and middle schools are holding open houses, and each high school is holding an orientation for new students and freshmen. Parents and students can meet teachers and principals, and get acquainted with the school's learning environment.

Please contact your child's school for more information and other questions.
