Wacross --  Classes have finally resumed in Ware County, after a week of no school.

Both students and teachers were eager to return and get their work done in order to finish out the school year.

With the fire still blazing in parts of the county, officials are unsure how many students will return and for how long.

"We really don't know yet how many students are going to show because of displaced families, how many have been impacted and living out of the area.  How many personal belongings were lost, and they don't have clothes to wear," said ROTC Instructor Col. Ken Wade.

The school board plans to work with the Department of Education to get a waiver that would not require them to make up those days at the end of the year.
