When the bell rings on Aug. 7, Magdalena Municipal Schools will welcome about 270 K-12 students back to school. Teachers returned to prepare on Aug. 1.

Superintendent Dr. Glenn Haven said that the K-12 numbers “will be about the same. We don’t know yet about pre-K.”

About staffing, Haven predicts that Magdalena schools will be fully staffed on the first day.

The district will hold its 19th annual open house on Thursday, Aug. 17, from 4-6 p.m. All parents and guardians are strongly encouraged to attend the meeting to be held in the Main Gym at 4:15 p.m.

After the meeting, dinner will be served in the Commons Area, starting at 4:45 p.m. The menu includes pulled pork/brisket, sides, roll, drinks and dessert.

Magdalena schools follow a four-day week.
