Northwest Sets First Day Of School
The first day of school at the Northwest Area Middle/High School will be Monday, Sept. 10, Principal Ryan Miner said Thursday. The first day at all Northwest Area schools was going to be the past Monday, but a fire at the middle/high school resulted in the delay. School will start for students at the Northwest Area Primary and Intermediate schools on Wednesday. The fire heavily damaged a portion of the middle/high school’s second floor. The school will set up temporary classrooms in the gym and larger classrooms because 18 classrooms on the second floor will not be accessible when school starts, Miner said.
