Basehor-Linwood schools in session
It's time to store away the sunglasses and flip flops because summer vacation is over for students in the Basehor-Linwood School District.
Classes are back in session beginning Friday Aug. 15 for elementary, middle and ninth-grade students; sophomores, juniors and seniors return to school Monday, Aug. 18.
Enrollment opened for students Aug. 4 and Aug. 5, however, school officials said students can still enroll before the first day of classes.
For more information, contact the Basehor-Linwood School Board Office at (913) 724-1396.
Although final enrollment numbers won't be official until Sept. 20, school district officials said there's a good chance more students will be attending classes in the school district than the year before.
"I think its safe to say that," Basehor-Linwood School District superintendent Jill Hackett said. "We seem to have a number of new families."
"Secretaries and principals are firming up their numbers."
Schools will be hosting open houses throughout the month of August; open houses are scheduled for Aug. 18 through Aug. 20 and Aug. 25 through Aug. 29.
