The Foothills School Division is getting ready to welcome back kids to school next week.
Teachers, administrators and custodial staff are working at having the classrooms ready while parents get school supplies.
Many of the back-to-school lists can already be found on the Foothills School Division website.
Once again, this year it will be a staggered start on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 with a few exceptions for kindergarten students.
You can even register online, and the schools opened Wednesday, Aug. 23 to allow for in-person registration.
When registering in person the division reminds you to bring your child's birth certificate or passport and proof of your address with either your driver's licence or something along those lines like a utility bill.
