Austintown begins classes in new buildings

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - This is  the first day of school for nearly 5,400 Valley students. 

The construction of two new elementary schools, delayed the start of Austintown Local Schools until after Labor Day. 

In addition to a new campus layout, parents and students should expect to see more law enforcement officers.

"The Austintown schools have always had security at Fitch High School and this year for the first time in the history with all of the things going on in society, we decided as a board to add a police officer in each building," said Austintown Local Schools superintendent Vincent Colaluca.

The school will also have an officer patrolling campus. 

Parents are asked to be patient and arrive early if they plan on dropping off their students because of new traffic patterns.
