School buses will start rolling for Vicksburg Warren School District students in six days and school officials are scrambling to be ready.

Meeting Thursday night, the district’s Board of Trustees approved the hiring of more than 25 teachers and teacher assistants, administrators, coaches and other employees.

They also were assured that construction at Warrenton Elementary School, where contractors were working to pave driveway and parking areas, would be manageable as its 400 students return the first day.
