TTUSD fall classes begin Monday

School bells will ring Monday morning for the start of the 1998-99 school year and more than 5,000 students will pour through the doors at Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District schools.

New classrooms, fresh paint and construction zones will meet students attending Truckee’s schools, but district Director of Facilities John Britto said the work is moving along as quickly as possible and should be done before the end of the year.

“There are lots of major projects going on,” he said. “Our summer was short so our projects are dragging into the fall. We are generally still on target.”

Glenshire Elementary School students will be welcomed back to school with open trenches, no parking and no bus lanes.

“It’s going to be a rough start at Glenshire,” Britto said. “We are urging parents to carpool if they need to drive their children to school. If everyone drops off their children at the same time it’s going to be difficult.”

Also, new to the district is Superintendent Pat Gemma, who took the helm from retiring Superintendent Vince Deveney Aug. 17.
