Forsyth County Schools began the 2017-18 academic year on Thursday, Aug. 3, welcoming more than 46,000 students and 5,000 employees to 36 campuses throughout the county.

The Forsyth County News went to Kelly Mill to catch the scenes as students arrived —many being dropped off by their parents — found their classrooms and met their new teachers and peers.
