EXETER — Wyoming Area School District students returned to the school for the 2016-17 year Wednesday, Sept. 7.
At the high school, incoming seventh graders were asked to meet in the cafeteria, and then reported to their first homerooms of their high school careers. Faculty and staff, including members of the Wyoming Area School Board, were on hand to greet students as they entered the building.
Exeter Borough officials, and members of the police department, were in front of the high school to monitor the traffic situation that arose late last week. Traffic was backed up to Wyoming Avenue from Lincoln Street, but no major concerns arose. The borough and school will monitor the flow of traffic during a 60-day period to later decide on implementing one-way signs on the streets near the school.
Superintendent Janet Serino said everything went smooth the first day in regards to the traffic.
This was also the first day of the new Wyoming Area Dress Code. School officials said the majority of the students were abiding by the rules, and they didn’t see too many students that would require attention.
