SLIDESHOW: Viewers share 1st-day school photos


A multi-ethnic group of elementary age children are getting on a school bus. The kids’ backs are to the camera. They are running towards the school bus which is parked with its door open. It’s a rainy day and the kids are wearing jackets, rain boots and backpacks.

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Monday marked the first day of in-person learning for thousands of Borderland students since the 2019-2020 school year was derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students across the city donned their best first-day gear and headed back to school in style. We asked viewers to share photos of their kids’ first day back for the 2021-2022 school year. We wish all students a great school year!
