RALEIGH — It is only the third week in July, and people are already buying school supplies. Students are going back to class a lot earlier than they used to.
Jenny Bennett and Teresa Cunningham-Brown work at Southeast Raleigh High where teachers reported for work Monday after only a few weeks off. The students will start coming back next week.
"I'm excited and refreshed. I've just come off of a brief vacation, and I'm excited about the classes I'm going to be teaching this year," Cunningham-Brown says.
Cunningham-Brown is not the only teacher who is getting ready for school to re-open. Here is a schedule of when schools will re-open:
Harnett, Hoke and Sampson County schools
Edgecombe, Granville, Lee and Wayne County schools
Halifax and Person County schools
Franklin, Northhampton, Vance, Warren and Wilson County schools
Moore County schools
Johnston, Nash-Rocky Mount, Orange and Wake County schools
Durham County schools
Chapel Hill-Carrboro schools
Chatham and Cumberland County schools
Students on the year-round schedule started back to school two weeks ago. Instead of a long summer vacation, they will get four breaks throughout the year.
