School starts Tuesday in Spotsylvania
Spotsylvania County students start the 2012-13 school year bright and early tomorrow morning so drivers need to be on the lookout not only for those big yellow school buses but also for the backpack-bearing youngsters headed to bus stops.
Most school districts across the Fredericksburg region kick off the 2012-13 school year the day after Labor Day but Spotsylvania is among the early birds.
Louisa County students started class last Wednesday. Culpeper County students start this Wednesday. The rest of the region starts on Sept. 4. That includes students in the city of Fredericksburg, the town of Colonial Beach and the counties of Stafford, Caroline, King George, Orange and Westmoreland.
