“It went smooth as silk,” said Principal Tim O’Connell.
“I’m sad and nervous,” said Wilton parent Jessie Watson. She took a photo as her oldest child entered Florence Rideout Elementary School for first grade.
School started at 8:20 a.m.
Wilton lost its playground to construction over the summer, but it was relocated just in time for the students’ arrival.
The 2014-2015 school year will be the last time students in grades 1-5 will walk through the doors at the Lyndeborough Central School. It will also be the last year the Florence Rideout Elementary School will use the 1950’s wing for classes. A portion of the wing was demolished last June and then construction began on a new addition. Next summer, the reminder of the wing will be demolished to complete the new building.
“I’m glad to be back. It will be exciting to see how the rest of the day goes. There are a lot of changes this year, but it will be exciting to see how it all turns out,” said Luther.
