Schools in the Roaring Fork School District begin Tuesday, Sept. 5. The district said 133 more kids are enrolled this year compared to last.
This does not include numbers from Bridges High School or Carbondale Community School.
There are also 75 new hires, which is more than usual, because of the district’s brand new Riverview School, south of Glenwood Springs.
The district’s start date was delayed until after Labor Day because of construction on the Grand Avenue Bridge. School bus routes have been reorganized to best navigate the congestion.
