Conneaut schools report smooth opening

It was back to school on Wed., Sept. 2, for students in the Conneaut School District as elementary and middle school bells at Conneaut Lake and Conneaut Valley rang 5 minutes earlier than last year and the bells at Conneaut Area Senior High rang 5 minutes later to accommodate better bus runs that is saving the district transportation money. Most bus routes are 45 minutes or less.

Indications are the opening was smooth including getting the Crawford County Career and Technical Center students to their location in Meadville. Morning CTC students are picked up on the elementary and middle school runs, taken to the senior high school, and transported to Meadville from there.

Conneaut school principals all reported smooth openings with Conneaut Schools superintendent Jarrin Sperry noting first day student numbers of 2,074, which was down from 2,081 from third day enrollment last year.

The school district had 2,060 total students when school ended in June, so a 14 student increase from the end of the last year.

Numbers have increased in the 9th and 10th grade classes. Kindergarten classes are running in the 20 - 24 number, with three sections at each the Lake and Valley Elementary Schools .
