Schools host day in district

Published 12:00 am Sunday, September 17, 2006

NATCHEZ &8212; One-stop shopping worked so well for the Natchez-Adams School District last year, they&8217;ve opted to do it again.

The second installment of &8220;A day in the Natchez-Adams School District&8221; will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. Parents and students can stop by the Steckler Multipurpose Center to get information on anything and everything about the coming school year.

The district held a similar all-in-one day last year because of major grade level reorganization. It&8217;s back by popular demand, Superintendent Anthony Morris said.

&8220;Every administrator thought it was such a good idea and asked if we could do it again,&8221; he said. &8220;Hopefully we&8217;ll be able to answer any questions they may have.&8221;

Representatives from each district school will set up tables at the Steckler Center, provide information and answer questions.

Parents can get school supply lists, bus information and lunch applications and more, Morris said.

New students can start the registration process, and Katrina evacuees can list concerns that may need to be addressed.

&8220;A lot of parents have children at more than one school,&8221; Morris said. &8220;(This way) they don&8217;t have to go to each one of the schools.&8221;

Parents can also receive materials from the Parent Center Thursday, and review district policies such as dress code and attendance.

The Steckler Center is behind Natchez High School.
