DARIEN, Conn. Darien schools will start their year on Thursday, Sept. 2, on a 90-minute delay, Superintendent Stephen Falcone announced Wednesday afternoon. The year was supposed to start Monday.
"All school buildings currently have power and food service capability, and road conditions will allow for appropriate, safe transportation," Falcone said in a statement.
Darien High School will start at 9:10 a.m. Middlesex Middle School will start at 9:25 a.m. Hindley, Royle and Tokeneke Elementary Schools will all start at 9:55 a.m. Holmes and Ox Ridge will start at 10:30 a.m.
Kindergarten orientation for students and parents will also take place Thursday morning. Students with last names A-M will have their orientation from 11 a.m. to noon. Students with last names N-Z will have orientation from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Falcone encouraged all students to take the bus. If students are walking home or getting driven, they should bring a note indicating this preference, he said. All high school and middle school students should report directly to their homerooms.
School personnel are not on a 90-minute delay, and should report to school at their regular time.
