Lunch for almost 1,630 people was part of the first day of school at Fairfield High School, where students from Sem Yeto are now in portable classrooms at the campus.
“We had a phenomenal, wonderful first day at school,” said Kristen Witt, principal of Fairfield High. “It felt like we had been in session for months.”
Students moved quickly to class, she said.
“They were happy to be here, sharing their stories from the summer,” Witt said. “Everyone was dressed to the nines.”
Enrollment is about 1,430 students, up from last year’s 1,350 – plus the 200 at Sem Yeto.
