With seven full days of school in the books for Lamar County students, enrollment numbers on two campuses are blowing away previous records. ‘This year’s numbers are by far the highest we’ve had at the middle school and high school,’ superintendent Dr. Jute Wilson reported Friday.There are 834 students enrolled at the high school of whom 816 have appeared on campus. The middle school has 652 enrolled with 641 in actual attendance. At the elementary school there are 596 enrolled with 535 in class. At the primary school, 766 are enrolled of whom 682 have arrived for classes.’Since our calendar starts earlier than most, we may have a few enrolled who have moved over the summer and will transfer out when their new school opens. We are trying to locate the ‘˜no-shows’, especially the fairly high numbers at the primary and elementary schools. All this starts leveling off by late August or early September,’ Wilson said.Classes began Monday at St. George’s Episcopal School in Milner where administrators were also expecting record high enrollment numbers.Students return to class at Rock Springs Christian Academy Aug. 16.
