Sheridan School Year Off to Good Start

Children and youth headed off to classes Monday morning for opening day of Sheridan County School District 2's new school year.

District 2 administers five elementary schools, the junior high and high school in Sheridan, and the elementary school in Story.

Scott Stults is the district's director of elementary education. He was enthusiastic about the start for the new year.

Although first-day enrollment figures were not available, the education director did speculate on what those figures would show.

He said at Coffeen and other elementary schools, the district has been dealing with overflow, where the number of children exceed the class size. In those cases, children have been bused to other schools in the district. The district restricts kindergarten classes to no more than 19 children, and first and second grades to 20 or, if necessary, 22. He said the same class sizes apply to grades three through five.
