AMARILLO -- Rise and shine and let the first day of school begin.
Many schools around the area began class this morning.
Parents and students seemed ready for the day.
Amarillo ISD schools had parents and kids lined up for drop off this morning and pick up this afternoon.
And for those kids not entirely ready to get back into the swing of things. They have their first holiday next Monday for labor day.
