Seminole County welcomes students back from summer break

Back To School

DONALSONVILLE, Ga. (WDHN) —  Bells are ringing and the school doors are open.

Students and teachers in Seminole County told us the first day of a school was a complete success.

“It was good because we had to go through so much with Hurricane Michael,” Superintendent Mark Earnest said.

Hurricane Michael swept through Seminole County in October, leaving many of the residents without power, and water. Because of the storm, students were out of school for 18 days.

Earnest told us not only did they get new students, but they hired more than 15 new teachers.

“Our principals did a very good job with our teachers,” Earnest said. “We’ve gotten a lot of new veterans teachers, and we are pretty excited about the new folks we have.”
