Three more school districts welcome students back today

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Summer vacation ends Wednesday for three more school districts. Students are heading back to school in Biloxi, Gulfport and Harrison County.

The first day of school means starting at a new school today for students and staff who were at Nichols Elementary, Beauvoir Elementary and Michel 6th grade school, because the Biloxi School District has closed those schools as a cost savings measure.

Petitions, protests and even a lawsuit aimed to keep the schools open, especially for Nichols. But today all three schools remain closed.

Later today on WLOX News and we'll show you how that change went in Biloxi for the students and staff.
