Is summer vacation officially coming to an end for school kids and their parents?
Schools in Tinley Park are opening their doors for the first day of classes, starting as early as this week (we're talking about you, Andrew High School), and Patch wants proud parents to show everyone how their kids handled returning to school. (We know teenagers have systematically banned having their parents take their pictures on the first day of school, but go ahead and give it a shot if you can.)
How can you share your pictures and videos with Patch readers? It's easy. All you have to do is upload them to our Back to School Photos Board. I'll be spotlighting some of the best as the first days come and go.
Here's a look at the first days for schools in the Tinley Park area.
- Andrew High School: Thursday, Aug. 15
- Lincoln-Way North High School: Tuesday, Aug. 20
- Tinley Park High School: Tuesday, Aug. 20 (freshmen and transfer students begin Monday, Aug. 19)
- Community Consolidated School District 146 schools (Central, Fulton and Memorial): Monday, Aug. 26
