The new Taconic High School opened on time, on budget, and with tremendous fanfare.
But not everything is perfect. The building isn't 100 percent complete yet and traffic on Valentine Road has become very problematic. But, the doors are open and a ribbon cutting featuring state officials is scheduled for Oct. 19.
Elected officials, firefighters, police officers, and community members stood in rows outside of each elementary school Wednesday morning with arms stretched out to give each student a high five.
School is back.
The School Committee on Tuesday approved a school calendar for 2018-19 that begins after the Labor Day weekend, with a Sept. 4 start for kindergarten through Grade 8 and Sept. 5 for Grades 9-12. Drury High School graduation is June 6 and the last school day on Friday, June 21.
