Ready or not, school bells are already ringing all across our area. The kids are back in class in lots of places, more than 8,000 students in Bulloch County alone. The pre-kindergarteners are learning school rules, like how to walk in line with their classmates and sharing the glue and scissors.
Things are going smoothly, but teachers and administrators had to make some quick accommodations for some students who just showed up.
"We had about 15 children so far to show up here unregistered," Dr. Trey Robertson, principal at Mill Creek Elementary. "But we've anticipated and can make room for them so it will be all right."
Today's also the first day for Candler County. And Chatham goes back in about two weeks.
