Back to School for Area Students

It’s the first day of school for many area students.

But some have been wondering – why is the school year starting on a Friday this year? Why not just wait until Monday?

West Delaware Superintendent Dr. Kristen Rickey explains.

Regardless of what day they start, a lot of students at Lambert Elementary in Manchester were excited to get started this morning.

Lambert Principal Rudi Hameister says he’s looking forward to a new school year.

You can check out a video of the “high five” tunnel Lambert staff created to greet the students on our KMCH Facebook page.
