Students were back in school on Wednesday for Logan County.

The halls of the six county schools were brimming with activity as the mostly smiling faces of kids, teachers and staff showed up for the first day of school.

And according to superintendent Paul Mullens, it couldn’t have went better.

“I thought we a great first day of school,” Mullens said. “Myself, Mr. Ben Kemplin and Ms. Contessa Orr visited all the schools on Wednesday. It’s always exciting to kick off a new school year. We all came back to the central office and shared what we saw – and we were all very pleased with what we saw.”

Usually one of the biggest challenges on the first day is making sure all the children riding the bus home are delivered safely and on time. But there were no issues with that on Wednesday.

“We had a good day of transportation,” Mullens said. “My hat’s off to Chris Rippy and his crew. We have the best transportation department in the state.”

Mullens said attendance was right about where it should be as well.

“Attendance was pretty much what we thought it would be,” he said.
