The long hot summer for students will officially end Wednesday when most county schools will open their doors to begin the 1993-94 school year.

* Resurrection Lutheran Preschool, 601 Hammonds Lane, offers children a head start in school.
The limited class size allows the tailoring of learning activities and social skills for 3- and 4-year-olds: sharing, taking turns and learning to work with others.
Language skills are developed through story telling, finger plays and song. Students also work on creativity, motor skills and emotional and self-help skills.
Openings are still available for the 1993-94 school year.
