It was a perfect summer day, but for the 2,400 students in the Seaford School District it was the end of summer vacation.
School kicked off Wednesday with some new technology and an emphasis on curriculum.
"The start of a new school year is always exciting and offers an opportunity for renewal for students and teachers," Superintendent Brian Conboy said. "The 2013-2014 school year will be focused on the infusion of curricular initiatives that are aligned to the Common Core as we effort toward making all of our students college and career ready."
Among the changes students will see will be new Apple computers in the Manor and Harbor elementary schools. They came as part of the district's technology upgrade plan, that put the computers in the middle school and high school last year.
The district is also adding new security systems in the hallways of each school, and there will be a new scoreboard on the high school's new turf field.
There was an asbestos abatement project completed over the summer at the high school as new ceilings were added on the first and second floors, while the middle school added a new chimney, soffit and pressure zone valve.
Manor school will break ground soon on a new playground, after winning the Together Counts Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes.
