BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - With the start of school comes the opening of three new Beaufort County schools.

On Wednesday, teachers at the new Pritchardville Elementary School in Bluffton were busy getting their classrooms ready for the start of school on Monday. The school expects to open with more than 500 students.

While teachers were setting up their classrooms, they got to choose a number of free books for their classroom collection for all the students to enjoy thanks to a generous donation.

"This is a huge day," said Principal Charles Johnson. "We're meeting throughout the school day, trying to make sure the teachers have everything they need, all their supplies. We want to make sure the first day when the students arrive, we're ready."

It was Beaufort County teachers third day back to school before the students arrive.
