475 new students from the Normandy school district are attending classes some 20 miles from their school they used to attend.

The new students began boarding buses as early as 6 a.m. today.  The transfers are the result of a Missouri Supreme Court ruling five weeks ago that allowed students in unaccredited districts to transfer to better performing schools.

Sheri Wilson has two daughters currently at Francis Howell Central High and tells KTRS News, "My girls are open-hearted and they don't see this as any different as any other child transferring in from any other school so they're looking forward to it."

All but one bus made it on time after going to the wrong high school. Students were taken to Francis Howell High instead of Francis Howell Central High and arrived 40 minutes late.

Student leaders and over a hundred mentors spent time transitioning Normandy students to the Francis Howell School District.

475 Normandy students made the leap to the accredited district. The number breaks down to 168 elementary school students, 164, middle school students, and 143 high schoolers. The kids spent the day getting tours of the schools, participating in team-building activities, and locating their lockers.  

The first day of school is Thursday.

   It was a big weekend for graduation ceremonies in the St. Louis area, but Friday night's storms forced several to be moved, postponed or both.  The storms downed power lines and damaged the Family Arena in St. Charles where five high schools had been scheduled to hold graduation ceremonies over the weekend.  

   Francis Howell North, Francis Howell Central and Francis Howell high school combined their separate Saturday ceremonies into one mega-graduation at Lindenwood University on Sunday where more than 390 students received their diplomas.  

   Mehlville and Oakville high schools had reserved the arena for Sunday and instead moved both commencements to Oakville.  And power loss at UMSL forced Hazelwood high schools to move their commencement exercises from Saturday, to Sunday.
