LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) - It's the start of a new school year for students, teachers and parents in the Gateway City.
It was a busy day for both school districts as they welcomed students from all grade levels back into the classrooms.
The new year means new changes, goals and challenges for students - and teachers were more then prepared this year for whatever may come their way.
"We prepare for months," said Martin Elementary Principal Delma Alaniz-Ramos. "It's during the summer months that we prepare for today. We get everything organized. We have what we call a handbook and we prepare throughout the year."
Parents are advised to get their kids to bed early, eat a healthy breakfast and be prepared the night before to avoid any morning delays.
