The lone school district not starting classes until next week is Boyden-Hull. Their school calendar lists Tuesday, August 27th as the first day of school in the Boyden-Hull district.

With the kids headed back to school, motorists are urged to be extra alert, and watch out for children who may dart out from between cars. In their excitement to get back to school and their friends, kids aren’t always as careful as they should be.

Kids, as you head back to school please remember to watch for traffic, and remember to crosss the street only at crosswalks.

Together we can make this a safe and happy back to school season for everybody.
