Guam - While students at Guam's public schools have an extended summer vacation due to unsanitary cafeteria facilities, Guam's private school students started classes today. Sister Doris San Agustin, principal at Saint Anthony School in Tamuning, says today marks the start of an exciting new year for her 750 students in kindergarten through 8th grade.

"It was very well the parents and the kids are here and it's just the weather that dampened it a little bit," she told KUAM News. "We're looking forward to a wonderful year and I'm sure the kids will learn a lot, and we do our best."

Meanwhile, Guam's thousands of public school students are now scheduled to start classes on Monday, August 22.
