Christ the Redeemer Catholic school division is set to open up the classrooms this week and welcome back students.

Not only students, but 32 new teachers are also ready to get the new school year underway.

And once again this year it will be a staggered start entry to kick off the year.

Students with last names starting with L through Z start tomorrow in most schools while students with last names starting with A through K start on Thursday.

Some of the schools such as the K-6 Holy Spirit school in High River have an Open House scheduled today, Tuesday Aug. 30 from 2:00 till 4:00 pm.

Same goes for the K-6 Ecole Good Shepherd school in Okotoks.

Meanwhile, the Foothills school division doesn't go back until Tuesday Sept. 6.
