The 2017-18 school year starts Wednesday, August 16, for all students in the Denton Independent School District, except for high school freshmen. Denton ISD’s Freshman First Day program ensures these students get an early, first-hand look at high school life at each of their respective campuses before the rest of their classmates on Tuesday, August 15. The program will allow first-year high school students to attend classes and walk the halls on their own, allowing them to become acclimated to the larger campuses. Freshman First Day also introduces participants to various school clubs, organizations and programs without the added stress of a typical first day of school, school officials said. Lunch will be available for purchase or students may bring it from home. In addition, bus transportation to students who would normally receive it will be provided. For more information on the program, please contact your respective high school.
