The Parkland Chamber of Commerce is hosting a back-to-school Q&A session on Zoom with area principals and School Board Representative Lori Alhadeff on Wednesday, Aug. 3, starting at 6 p.m.

The event is free and open to everyone in the community.

Principals include Michelle Kefford from Stoneman Douglas High School, Westglades’s Matthew Bianchi, Heron Heights’s Meredith Weiss, Park Trails’s Arlene Manville, and Riverglades’s Jo-Anne Misiewicz Seltzer, Somerset’s Geyler Castro, and Mary Help of Christians’s Julienne Winneger.
