Back to school this week

Area students headed back to school this week. Colville School District's first day was August 29. Kettle Falls School District started a day later, followed by the Chewelah School District on August 31. Keep an eye out for the Statesman-Examiner's back to school photo collage in the Sept. 7 edition.

If you would like your child's first day of school photos that you've taken included in the Sept. 7 edition, either email the photos to or send a link through Facebook
