Back to school for Preston and West Side school districts

School bells rang earlier Monday for students in the Preston School District and it’s back to school Tuesday for the West Side District students. The Preston School District is on a new four-day week that was implemented to help save money for the 2010-2011 school year. Preston High School students and those in elementary schools start at 8:10 a.m. with junior high students scheduled to start at 8 a.m. In the past, school started at 8:30 a.m. and 8:40 a.m. respectively. Preston Police Chief Val Sparrow says community residents need to consider safety issues with school starting earlier than in the past.
