We're officially a week away from the start of school.
Sheena Valley with the Keewatin Patricia District School Board said they always look forward to back-to-school time.
"Back-to-school time in general is one of our most favourite times of the year. It's exciting, it's the start of a new year, a new beginning for staff and students," she said.
Valley talked about the work that goes into preparing for the new school year.
"Our schools are always sparkling clean. Our custodial maintenance staff, the hours and time they put in during the summer months when some of our staff is off, really I think needs to be acknowledged," she said.
She also added a reminder to residents to be cautious when driving in school zones, since they will be bustling with students once again.
School starts on Wednesday September 5.
