School year ready to kick off in Northern Westchester

Last year, construction delays at Yorktown High School caused classes to start a week late, but this year, Yorktown schools are ready to roll. Still, the district did have some construction problems. One contractor declared bankruptcy while work was under way this summer, but the work was eventually finished in time for the beginning of the school year.The Pleasantville School District also endured major construction this year. A new Bedford Road school is ready for students, while the old school is being demolished to make way for a playground. The old school on Bedford Road had been a part of the community for nearly 100 years.There are other construction projects wrapping up in Northern Westchester, but all are expected to finish before students arrive. Most districts in the area will begin school on Wednesday, except for the Pleasantville district, where classes begin on Thursday.
