They’re back….or soon will be. Wilkes County Students head back to school on Thursday, August 9, 2012. Yes, it was a short summer, Charlie Brown. With school buses back on the highways this week and students loading and unloading from buses, please, give yourself extra time to get to and from work or other destinations and watch out for those buses on the highway. We at 3WC join all those across the county who are praying for a safe, happy, and productive school year. Also, Wilkes County Pre-K classes are taking applications for the 2012-2013 school year. If your child will be 4 years old on or before August 31, 2012, please call the school in your district for information.
