Spokesperson Sheri Fowler reports that all went well in Rockwall ISD on the first day of the 2010-11 school year.
None of the schools reported any mechanical problems. (I’m sure all the students were grateful for those blasts of air conditioning.)
Out of around 13,500 students in the district, only 39 showed up today without proper immunizations. That number dropped throughout the day as parents took students to get their shots and then checked them into school.
Fowler’s favorite “first-day of school” scene? A glimpse of kindergarten students wearing “Class of 2023” T-shirts at Reinhardt Elementary.
“They received the shirts at orientation and they are PRECIOUS!” she wrote in an e-mail.
UPDATE: Fowler sent me some pictures of those cute kindergarteners.
