EUREKA- Many North Coast schools resume class this Monday.  On Tuesday, staff with Eureka City Schools gathered as a group for the first time to discuss the upcoming year.

Teachers, maintenance personnel, custodians, administrative and clerical officials attended the annual Welcome Back Breakfast Tuesday morning at Eureka High School.  School officials laid out the goals for the year and staff went through specialized training during the kick-off event.  Also, Superintendent Fred Van Vleck discussed what the proposed $50 million bond measure, Measure S, would mean for Eureka City Schools.  Administrators say it is an exciting time of year for school staff. 

"It's kind of like the first day of school for students.  Everyone's excited to get here.  Everyone's happy to be here and can't wait to get started on the schoolyear.  We're happy that the teachers have had a restful summer and I'm happy that some of our classified crew had a very productive summer working here.  Not everyone gets a summer off.  And everyone came in today with a real tone of heightened expectations for the year," said Superintendent Van Vleck.
