Ready to Roll

Children began forming lines to board the buses as they rolled through the neighborhoods in Portsmouth for the first day of school on the sweltering morning of Wednesday, Aug. 29. In Middletown, the teachers and students are in orientations and start school on Wednesday, Sept. 5. In the Newport School District, for pupils in grades 1 through 12, the start date is also Sept. 5, with the first full day of kindergarten scheduled for Friday, Sept. 7. So, as a reminder to drivers, allow a few extra minutes for travelling. Remember that bus monitors will be providing extra safety for our community’s precious cargo, and heed the buses’ red stop signs. (Photo by Lynne Tungett)
