Year-round students began classes in UCPS schools today (Monday, July 26, 2010).

Shiloh Elementary School Principal Mike Henderson said the first day went smoothly, a great start to the 2010-2011 school year.

"It's always exciting to begin a new school year," said Monroe Middle Principal Montrio Belton. "Students eagerly anticipate school starting. They're always excited." 

School officials said the new school year got off to a smooth start, with no major problems reported.

Students in year-round schools in Union County started Monday, while students on the traditional calendar will begin classes August 25, 2010.
