Albany - 17,000 thousand public school students headed back to class in Dougherty County Wednesday. Things got off to a slow start for some students at Merry Acres Middle School who still had to register for classes. Others jumped right to work, finding out what will be expected of them this year and learning that tropical storm Chris may interfere with the first test date in Ms. Bumgardner's class.

Eighth grader Michelle Derico says she's glad to be back in school, although she's already looking forward to the end of the year.  She says, "Feels great. This is my last year and I'm ready to go to high school."

Most other area school systems start back later this week or the beginning of next week.
