V.I. schools ready for students and teachers to return

Last week teachers and staff returned to school for training and to prepare their classrooms and campuses for the start of the year on Tuesday.

Maintenance crews cut grass, did touch-up painting and made last-minute repairs. Teachers hung up new posters and wiped down desks, making everything look fresh and bright for the arrival of their students.
