Back to buses, books and bagged lunches for students as summer vacation officially ends for the younger residents of Millburn and Short Hills.
"Classes and test and homework, oh my," the High School front sign said, welcoming students back to a national Blue Ribbon School. Millburn High School has been one of top-ranked school throughout New Jersey for years.
The Millburn School District reopened its the doors to its almost 5,000 students on Tuesday to kick off the 2012-2013 school year. Over 25 new staff members were hired throughout the school district, which were in orientation last week.
"The new year is here," Superindendent Dr. James Crisfield said. "It's always great to see the kids with smiling faces back in the classes."
The Board of Education has pushed for state of the art technology and this year it's finally all put into action.
"Now we finally get to utilize the technology we have," Crisfield said. "With the new wireless network we can use it in exciting ways."
In the summer, the board approved a five year contract with Apple to keep computers under 5-years-old in schools.Not only that, but the Education Foundation donated over $100,000 of Ipads and equipment to the district in June.
