The students at Latham School started on Tuesday, Sept. 4, the day after Labor Day. The late start allowed the school staff to ready the new building, finished only weeks ago, for the school year.

Although some tasks remain to be completed, and the heavy rain in the morning hampered the arrival of students and teachers, the classrooms were ready for the influx of students on Tuesday morning.
