HELIX- Schools in the Helix district will start Sept. 1, instead of Aug. 31, due to a chemical leak.

Student grades four through eight will be relocated to the following rooms: Fourth grade, music room; fifth grade, library; sixth grade, special education room; seventh grade, foyer and eighth grade, large gym.
