DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Thousands of students go back to school this week here in Southwest Georgia.
In Dougherty County, parents, students, and teachers are getting ready for Open House on Monday.
The open houses are at different times for the elementary, middle and high schools to help parents who might have students in different schools.
"We stagger those times, and that way they get the school year kicked off right and hopefully that they will want to be at school on the first day of school because it's important to get every minute of instruction that we can," said Dougherty Co. School Superintendent Kenneth Dyer.
Open house for all Dougherty County Schools is on Monday:
- Elementary Schools: 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- Middle Schools: 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- High Schools: 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
