SMITHS STATION, AL (WTVM) - By this time next week, almost every school in our area will have started the new school year.
Smiths Station High School is one of many schools in our area where registration is officially underway.
We spoke with Principal Joaqin Richards as staff prepares to welcome back students next week.
He says signs indicate students are more than ready to start the new school year.
"The participation we've had over the past two days, I think our children are ready to come back… large numbers yesterday with our 10th graders and certainly large numbers with our juniors and seniors today," Richards said. "So…again, it's time- we're ready- most schools have already started- some started today."
Smiths Station High, along with Lee County schools, start back Aug. 10.
