school officials say city schools will start late this school year. The first day of school — for all three schools — will be Tuesday Sept. 2, instead of the originally scheduled date of Aug. 28. The new date was set with the hope that construction on the hallway floors of Main Street Middle School
will be mostly, if not completely, finished. Union Elementary
and Montpelier High School
will open on Sept. 2 regardless of any further delays at the middle school. Main Street Middle School was shut down on July 28 because of possible asbestos contamination. Department of Health officials have been working with the Environmental Protection Agency investigating the incident.
