Thomas County-  Thomas County teachers started back to school Tuesday, with a little extra money in their pockets. It was the first day for teachers at Garrison-Pilcher Elementary School.

Tuesday, teachers signed for their $100 Visa gift cards to purchase supplies for their classrooms during this weekends tax free holiday. Thomas County teachers must save their receipts and turn them in.

"A lot of times we are documented and we do go through a process where sometimes we are held accountable for how things are spent so this is just a way of saying okay, we did spend it the right way," said Karen Kugelmann, Garrison Pilcher Principal. 

Teachers can only use the cards between Thursday and Sunday. Classes for students begin Monday.
