As we wave goodbye to June and usher in July, it's almost time to say those three words that cause some people to shiver, and not because they're cold.


We are less than a month away in some school districts from teachers being called back in for those work days leading up to the new school year.  Then, there are other districts where the students still have almost eight weeks before the first day of class.

I've tried my best to track down the first day of class for schools across Deep East Texas.  I'm talking about the first day back for students. It looks like the schools going back the earliest will be Apple Springs, Corrigan-Camden, and Leggett.  They'll be opening the doors for students on August 3.  In contrast, August 22 will be the first day back for schools like Nacogdoches, Central Heights, and Brookeland. Plus, it looks like Timpson will be joining several other area schools with a 4-day school week.

Here's the list of when schools will be having their first day of class:
