The Alton School District is getting ready for the start of the school year a week from today, and will hold open houses for students next Tuesday.  The evening events will allow the kids and parents to meet teachers, principals and other staff, and get used to their surroundings.

Alton School District Superintendent’s Secretary Kara Twichell tells the Big Z they are also taking last minute registration this week at the individual schools, so you can call to set up an appointment:
