Though Seattle Public Schools, and many independent schools who follow its calendar, don’t start classes until the Wednesday after Labor Day – it’s already back-to-school time for some other local schools:
Local parochial schools usually start and finish earlier, and that’s the case again this year. Checking calendars tonight, we discover that today was the first day of school for Seattle Lutheran High School (4100 SW Genesee). Monday (August 29th) is the first day for Holy Rosary Catholic School (42nd/Genesee); Wednesday (August 31st) is the start of classes for Hope Lutheran School (42nd/Oregon); Thursday (September 1st) is Day 1 for Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School (34th/Myrtle). The only local parochial school that doesn’t start until after Labor Day is Holy Family Bilingual Catholic School (20th/Roxbury), where classes begin on September 6th.
