The first day of school at Freer ISD last Monday went smoothly, officials said.

Records show 405 students are enrolled at Norman Thomas Elementary, the junior high had 198 enrolled and the high school had an enrollment of 240 for a total enrollment of 843 students.

As renovation work soon begins at the high school, classes will be held in the annex building and in portable buildings that have been set up behind the junior high building.

Offices of the superintendent and business manager will also be relocated to a portable facility as soon as preparations are ready.

After work is completed in the high school, junior high renovations will follow, ending with the renovating of the annex building.

Repairs will be ongoing at the elementary school throughout the renovation project.

Work is estimated to be complete within two to three years.
