NEW MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – The New Milford School District has moved back the first day of school for the 2022-2023 school year.

While previously the New Milford public school system had August 25 listed as their first day of school, the schools’ calendar has been updated to say the first day is now September 6.

This setback is due to the ongoing repairs from the fire that broke out at the New Milford High School. The cause of that fire is still unknown, according to officials.

News 8 will provide updates as more information becomes available.
