Parents and students lined the halls on Monday, Aug. 3, to register for the new school year.
Assistant Principal Brian Carey says he is excited about the upcoming year. “We’re looking forward to a fresh start, everyone is eager to get in and get started.”
According to Carey, this year the schedule will be a bit differant that in the past.”We have a six-weeks-on and two-weeks-off schedule.” Said Carey. Classes will go for six weeks, then have a two week break. If school is canceled due to weather, the time can easily be made up during the two week break.
“This way we know for sure that school will let on on May 26,” explained Carey.
