With the first day of classes already underway for three
schools on the Non-Traditional Academic Calendar, and quickly approaching for 28
schools on the Traditional Academic Calendar, Wayne County Public Schools

the school year. The first day of school for schools operating on the
traditional academic calendar is Monday, August 27. Below is important Open
House information for parents and students:
Open House events allow students the opportunity to meet teachers, tour their school, pick up supply lists, and see daily schedules for classes. Open House also allows parents the opportunity to ask teachers individual questions in reference to their child's needs, and hear teachers’ expectations for students.
