It was a perfect day weather wise as the Labor Day week-end progressed. The high in Batavia was 81 and the low 59 for an average of 70. That is three degrees above the normal average for September first. Beautiful sunny skies allowed any activity to proceed. The same should be true for today with mostly sunny skies and a high in the mid 80’s. Labor Day is a different story though as skies are expected to be mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers in the afternoon. The high on Labor Day is expected to be in the low 80’s. So if you are planning an outdoor activity, today is the day to do it.
As part of the Batavia City School Districts school reorganization, the Middle school will have grades 5 through 8 in attendance; previously it had been only grades 6 through 8.

5th graders will participate in team building activities followed by an afternoon of lessons on various topics, such as internet safety. Sixth graders will spend the morning experiencing traveling to their classes, finding their lockers, and meeting their teachers. During the afternoon, they will participate in team building activities. All students will be dismissed at 2:45PM. 7th and 8th graders will not be going to school until Thursday because of the Connect Day.
