Alhambra students donned their backpacks and buttoned up their uniforms Tuesday, returning to school after summer vacation. We asked readers to share some of their back-to-school images and stories.
One local mom said her son was so excited for the first day of school, he set rules for drop-off. "He did warn me though that I should not kiss him because it would be embarrassing so instead we opted for a hug," said Tanya Velasco, whose son Christopher started kindergarten at Martha Baldwin Elementary. "As happy as I am for him on his first day of kindergarden, it really tugged at my heart that he is not a baby anymore. Time flies."
Heather Akers dropped her children off at Garfield Elementary this morning. "All the kids were so excited to be back at school!" she said. "Give them a couple weeks, and they will wish it was summer again!"
