School in session: Classes begin in 2 of Berks' 18 districts

Summer break for most students to end next Monday

Summer vacation has come to an end for students in two of Berks County's 18 public school districts.

Tuesday was the first day for students to return to the classroom in the Brandywine Heights Area and Oley Valley school districts.

Brandywine Heights took to Twitter with a little humor on the eve of the first day, sharing a meme of actor Will Ferrell as Buddy the Elf and the words, "BHASD starts tomorrow. I'm so excited!!!"

Students in the county's 16 other school districts will have to contain their excitement a bit longer.

Classes will resume in the Hamburg Area School District on Thursday; students in all other districts -- Antietam, Boyertown Area, Conrad Weiser, Daniel Boone Area, Exeter Township, Fleetwood Area, Governor Mifflin, Kutztown Area, Muhlenberg, Reading, Schuylkill Valley, Tulpehocken Area, Twin Valley, Wilson, and Wyomissing -- will return to school next Monday, August 27.

Next Monday will also be the first day for students in the Upper Perkiomen School District, which includes Berks County's Hereford Township.
