The first day of school in Weston went smoothly yesterday. The middle school opened with no delay from the door and window construction project, and all four campuses were bustling with energy.

“Welcoming the students back to campus yesterday for the new school year brought excitement and life back to our previously quiet summer campus,” said Superintendent Colleen Palmer.

She said students returned with smiles and some sleepy faces and got a warm reception from teachers and staff members. “We look forward to another wonderful year with our students and families,” Dr. Palmer said.

At Hurlbutt Elementary School things also went very well on day one, which for many young students is their first time at school. All the teachers at Hurlbutt gathered outside to greet each student as they stepped off buses and out of cars.  “We began with ‘all hands on deck’ where every staff member along with parent volunteers helped guide our students to where they needed to go,” said Joanna Genovese, Hurlbutt principal.

The rest of day one at Hurlbutt was filled with classroom community meetings to familiarize students with expectations and learn more about their classmates.  “We are thrilled with the amount of energy and excitement for this upcoming school year,” Ms. Genovese said.
