For Westmont Elementary students it was their first day of school in their new building. The superintendent said the first day went smoothly. We stopped by as classes let out. Parents agree, and others feel the district should of waited longer before letting kids in the building. We were taken into the building for a look at the progress. Construction still being done in some areas including the cafeteria and the library. We are told it is isolated from the students but a layer of dust could be seen in class rooms and other parts of the building. When questioned the superintendent said the dust will be cleaned up every night. "They should of waited like Forest Hills did. Started school at the old one, moved them over at Christmas time." "It would be nice if it could have been done, but it's better than waiting and starting later." The superintendent says he hope construction will be done by October first.
