MCS Launches School Start

It's official.

The 2021-2022 school year is now under way for Madison City Schools.

Buses rolled through neighborhood streets, car lines crawled in, and walkers, teen drivers - even a couple of bicycle riding students - made their way to schools today.

There were a few tears shed today by first time students. Some were from parents dropping off a first-born.

Teachers and staffs did their usual great job of keeping order, despite a few registration snafus, bus hiccups and other small setbacks.

All in all it was a great opening day and a joy to see students bringing the schools back to life.

Here are some random photos from schools.
