Laurie Strode, now the dean of a Northern California private school with an assumed name, must battle the Shape one last time, as the life of her own son hangs in the balance.
During the opening credits, there's a yearbook photo with Laurie Strode as part of the "Class of 78", meaning she graduated in 1978. However in the original film, Laurie was in school during the fall of 1978. Although it's not mentioned what grade she was in, she would've been the Class of either 79, 80, or 81.

(at around 39 mins) In the classroom on the blackboard, the spelling of W.B. Yeats' name changes from the (wrong) spelling "Yates" to the correct "Yeats."
