DURANT, OK - Durant students will get a few more days of summer vacation. Administrators say school will start on August 29 due to construction on the new high school and middle school. They broke ground back on the new high school back in 2009.
Officials say delaying the start of school by one week will allow staff to become more familiar with their new surroundings, as well as allowing more time for teacher training.
The only change to the school calendar is that April 27th will now be an instructional day. All other school holidays will remain unchanged.
