DEL VALLE, Texas — Hundreds of Central Texas students were up early Thursday morning, heading back to class.

Aug. 15 marked the first day of school for Round Rock, Georgetown, Leander, Hays, Manor, Pflugerville and Wimberley.

Other kids who don't have school were probably sleeping in. And even though school doesn't start for Del Valle Independent School District until Aug. 26, that wasn't the case in Del Valle Thursday.
