Back to school

Pending approval by the Board of Education of District 435, Abilene public schools are tentatively scheduled to begin the fall semester on Wednesday, August 26,

Superintendent Greg Brown reported via e-mail following the Dickinson County superintendents meeting with Dickinson County Health Department officials.

“The five superintendents in Dickinson County met with the county health department to collectively determine a prudent start date for our area,” Brown said. “The decision was made to wait until Wednesday, August 26 before starting school with the students.”

Abilene’s school board will gather in a special meeting Monday, July 27 at 7 p.m. for discussion and approval.
