The first day of school is today for many students in Muskoka and for some, it’s the first day of a new experience.

It’s the first day of high school for those moving from elementary school to grade nine.

At Huntsville High School, most of the new students already have a head start from last week’s Link Crew Orientation and teacher Nico Byl says it should be an easy first day with all the help they will receive.

He says students should expect help all year long as the Link Crew leaders have committed to making it an easy transition to high school.
