It's going to be an interesting start to the year for one Jersey Shore middle school. The doors are closed and parents are upset.

Students and staff at Manchester Township Middle School will be having class at the high school on a split session. Mold was discovered on the first floor and sources say that part of the school will have to be "gutted." I wonder if Snooki & JWoww brought the mold to Manchester. Back to serious business.

Superintendent David Thethaway said to a group of 200 parents this morning:

We looked at a variety of different options and found that this would work the best. Our first concern is the safety of our students and staff. Next is the education of our students.

Under the split session plan, high school students will have classes from 7 a.m. to noon, while the more than 700 displaced middle school students will attend classes from noon to 5 p.m.
