Must-have back-to-school news this week

Your comprehensive look at back-to-school
Summer is almost over ... at least for school-age children. In just 13 days, riding bikes, playing video games and sleeping in all day come to an end as the little ones head back to the classroom for a new School Year. Schools open for students on Wednesday, Aug. 10, ending another short summer vacation courtesy of Old Man Winter. But just nine months and 170 closing bells later, they'll get summer back again. Closing day is currently scheduled for May 12, 2017. This year promises to be unlike any other at Crittenden County Schools.
