That day all parents seem to wait all summer for has finally arrived.
Children across the Alamo City are headed back to school Monday.
“The Northside School District will welcome a record 106-thousand kids to school” Northside ISD’s Pascual Gonzalez told KTSA News, adding the staff is ready for their return.
“All the details about opening schools, all the details about registering kids, making sure kids are immunized, making sure kids know what to bring to school–all of those details have been worked out” Gonzalez said.
It’s a theme playing out across many districts around San Antonio.
“All of our teachers are excited about starting up a new year” the Judson ISD’s Steve Linscomb told KTSA News.
He said faculty and staff will be ready to do their part.
“Making sure students go to the right classes, they know where they’re going” Linscomb said.
That excitement over a new school year also extends to San Antonio’s South and West sides.
“We are excited, we’re looking forward to a new school year” Edgewood ISD”s Keylha Calderon-Lugo told KTSA News, admitting some students will be adjusting for a little while.
“Going back to school, waking up early, having to do homework, but we know for a lot of them, they like it. They like the structure. They like being with their friends, and that they can learn so many great things” Calderon-Lugo said.
“We’re so excited about the first day of school” the Southside ISD’s Sylvia Rincon told KTSA News, adding they’ve been pushing hard to make sure all of the kids in the District have the supplies they need to get back to class the right way.
“We’ve opened up or Cardinals Care Closet–which is for the first time in Southside–we have this closet where we collect clothes and backpacks and blue jeans and supplies for our families whoa re most in need” Rincon said.
Donations for the Cardinals Care Closet are still being accepted.
