The week prior to the first day of school, Levittown Public Schools' middle schools and high schools welcomed incoming sixth- and ninth-graders during special orientation programs.
On Aug. 29 and Aug. 30, Jonas E. Salk and Wisdom Lane middle schools hosted separate orientations which allowed the students to learn more about their new building, the policies and procedures and practice opening their lockers.
Division Avenue and General Douglas MacArthur high schools organized similar programs geared toward providing students with key information as they transition from middle school students to high school freshmen on Aug. 30. At each high school, senior peer leaders served as mentors, provided guided building tours, assisted with lockers and answered questions about classes and programs.
