Students around East Texas still have a little bit of summer vacation left, but many area teachers are back in the classroom getting ready.
Teachers in the Nacogdoches Independent School District spent several hours Monday morning going through their orientation. They were given lots of information to prepare them for the new school year. Everything from enforcing "zero tolerance" policies for drugs and alcohol to the procedures for distributing hall passes was discussed.
The first day of school in Nacogdoches is August 15th.
