‘Smoothest opening’ to school superintendent has seen
By Gary Lloyd
Trussville City Schools Superintendent Pattie Neill thought the phone system was faulty.
It just wasn’t ringing Monday, the first day of school for area students.
Normally on the first day of school, something, multiple things, go wrong. Neill used a cell phone to call her office number, to make sure it was working. It immediately rang.
No one was calling because there were no problems.
“Today was the smoothest opening of school I’ve ever seen,” Neill said Monday at the Trussville City Board of Education meeting.
Neill said the buses ran “perfect, flawless.” Trussville City Schools Student Support Coordinator Mandi Logan was present for one school’s fire drill, and she said it went “very well.”
Firsy-year Hewitt-Trussville Middle School Principal Lisa Berry said her first day “was a very good day.”
Things went smoothly at Clay-Chalkville High School on Monday, too.
“Had an awesome 1st day back at CCHS!” Principal Michael Lee tweeted. “Assistant Principals, Counselors, Teachers, and Support Staff did a great job in preparation! Thanks!”
“Smooth” was also the word at Pinson Valley High School.
“A smooth day…thanks to the hard work of a committed staff. #proudprincipal,” Pinson Valley High School Principal Terrence Brown posted on Twitter.
