It’s that time of year again – back to school! The first day of school for all students is Monday, August 27. Please remember that if you have any transportation changes for your student from last year, you must fill out the necessary form that can be found on the district’s website, at least twenty-four hours in advance of the change. And be careful of the school buses as children board them and get off at the end of the school day.
The Montgomery Varsity Football team will open their season away on Friday, August 31, at Cowanesque Valley High School in Westfield, PA. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Be sure to go out and support all of your Red Raider teams for the 2012 season!
