Chillicothe R-2 students wasted no time getting back into the classroom and the gym as the second semester of the 2013-14 school year officially began today. Field Elementary students (above) enjoyed an early-morning P.E. class with instructor Karen Jackson. The second semester was originally scheduled to begin Jan. 2, but inclement weather cancelled classes Jan. 2 through Jan. 7. Students will now be in class on Jan. 20 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), Feb. 17 (Presidents’ Day), May 21 and May 22. Pending additional cancellations, May 22 is the new year-end date for the R-2 district.
