Granbury enrollment was down, but Lipan and Tolar’s were up on the first day of school Monday.
Granbury enrollment – 6,395 – was 25 fewer students than the first day last year.
Lipan’s enrollment – 316 – was up 16, and Tolar’s was up 10 at 597.
“So far, so good,” Granbury School Superintendent James Largent said on opening day. “I got a good report from the transportation department this morning that all our routes went well. And, I have been on six campuses already today (with five more to go), and I am hearing that everyone is having a very smooth first day of school.”
The new superintendent said he’s seen “lots of smiling faces” from students and staff.
Lipan Superintendent Cindy Edwards said school officials are excited about Lipan’s steady enrollment increase.
Enrollment was 280 when she arrived, rising to 300 last year.
“I believe our enrollment growth is an indication that people are noticing that we have great things happening at Lipan ISD,” Edwards said.
Tolar enrollment was up at the elementary and junior high and down at the high school, Tolar Superintendent Bruce Gibbs noted.
“We had a great first day of school,” he said. “I don’t remember a first day ever going this smoothly. Our principals and staff did a wonderful job in getting prepared.”
