Congratulations, Hemphill ISD...you win!

Back to school time is looming and all of the area schools will be heading back to the classrooms sometime between mid to late August.  The Hornets of Hemphill will be the first area school to make the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year official with their return on Monday, August 13th.  Something tells me that my celebratory tone won't be shared by all students and faculty.

Yes, believe it or not, back to school time is not too far off.  Heck, mandatory teacher workdays are practically upon us.  The statewide Back to School Tax-free Weekend is set for August 10-12.

Here's a list of the first days of classes for the area schools and school districts.  If you see a school missing or an error, please contact us.
