LOSTANT — Worried about students lugging too much stuff on the first day for classes?
Lostant School will host Unpack the Backpack Night 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15.
The event is open to the community and replaces the fall open house the district held in previous years.
“We want everybody to come and see our school,” school board president Dianna Ioerger said this month, adding that some classrooms have been re-painted.
Parents can drop off their children’s school supplies in their classroom that night, avoiding the overloaded backpacks coming by bus on the first day of school. Community members also are invited to tour the school. Hot dogs and chips will be provided.
