Officials at Webbers Falls Public Schools have pushed back the start of the school year to Sept. 3 because of continuing efforts to rebuild and recover after the May 2019 flood disaster.
Paula Turley, secretary to the Webbers Falls superintendent, said crews are still putting up sheetrock in several school buildings. The work is almost completed, she said.
Turley said that pushing the start date back a month would not affect the end of the school year, which will end in May as usual. “We won’t be going to school into June,” she said.
