BENTON – School buses are ready for the road and teachers are making their ways back to classrooms as Marshall County Schools open this week. Classes start Thursday at all county schools. Christian Fellowship School will start its calendar year next Monday.
Superintendent of Marshall County Schools Trent Lovett said staff are set for the busy week.
“We’re sitting on ready,” Lovett said. “It’s been a quick summer.”
Administrator changes were few this summer. Stephen Flatt will move to the board office this year, assuming the role of Director of Special Education.
Flatt’s position as Benton Elementary assistant principal will be filled by Lorrie Booth. Booth, a Marshall County native, recently served as an interim principal at Murray Elementary School.
Another Marshall County native will be joining the faculty at North Marshall Middle School. Lori Phillips will replace Paul Lamb as assistant principal.
“She taught here for a number of years and then went to Crittenden County,” Lovett said. “She was principal at Crittenden County High School, but she’s coming back home.”
Lamb, meanwhile, accepted a position with CFS.
Several county schools conducted informational meetings last week. CFS will hold a back to school night Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
