Arlington School District invites public to 'Know Your Schools' Oct. 25

ARLINGTON — The Arlington School District will again be inviting elected officials, members of the community and students' families to the fall "Know Your Schools" event, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25.

"We look forward to hosting our fifth 'Know Your Schools' event on Oct. 25," Arlington School District Superintendent Dr. Kristine McDuffy said. "These events have been so well-received by our community that we have committed to hosting them twice each year — one in the fall and one in the spring."

Attendees are welcome to partake of a complimentary lunch with McDuffy in the lobby of the Byrnes Performing Arts Center, located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd. in Arlington, after which they'll be invited to attend a tour of a select number of Arlington schools, to see for themselves how the district's focus and staff collaboration are striving to meet the needs of all the district's students.

"We understand that these schools belong to the community, and that we're charged with being excellent stewards," McDuffy said. "'Know Your Schools' gives us a chance to have a dialog with the community, about the challenges and celebrations in our schools, as well as to visit a few of our schools, to see students and staff in action. We hope you can join us."

Contact Arlington School District Public Information Officer Andrea Conley by phone at 360-618-6217, or via email at, to make your reservation.
