Knox, North Judson-San Pierre Schools Ready for New Year

 Summer is almost over for students attending area schools.

Knox Community School Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the staff is nearly ready for the start of school.

“Everybody is trying to get everything ready,” said Gappa. “The building administrators are getting things going. We have some professional development days this week for all of the staff members. New teachers are coming in Friday and all staff members will report on Monday, Aug. 11. We also have back to school night from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in each of the buildings. Parents can come in and meet the teachers and see what the classrooms are like and get going from there.”

Students will report for the first day of school on Tuesday, Aug. 12.

North Judson-San Pierre School Superintendent Lynn Johnson said everyone there is ready for the start of the brand new school year.

“We are ready! We are still, of course, registering kids. We do have our plans for the first two days, Monday and Tuesday, which are teacher work and staff development days. The kids start on the 13th.”

Johnson added that one of the big projects completed over the summer was the installation of wireless internet.

We will hear from other area superintendents on the status of their school year preparations yet this week.
