PRINCETON- Kids in Mercer County were enjoying their last day of summer vacation Wednesday.

Students return to school Thursday morning across the county. Mercer County schools have the earliest start date of any school district in the area. After snow days became an issue for the district in the past, they moved up their start date all the way up to August 7th. For students in Mercer County, they're looking forward to seeing their friends.

"I am excited that its my last year here as a senior at Princeton High School and the only thing I'm looking forward to this year is hanging out with my friends," said Susan Snyder.

Students outside of Mercer County have a week to two weeks left of summer break depending where they live before they return to school.
