While most Region 8 students are enjoying the last few weeks of summer, some children are hitting the books again.

Students in the Cross County School District started the new school year Monday, August 1.

The district begins sooner in August because students get a fall break in October.

Most school districts in Region 8 will begin the new academic year on August 15.
