Wednesday was the first day of school in Crystal Lake.
It was only a half a day, but how glorious was the weather.
School was in session in Springfield while temperatures were over 90 degrees.
The students were let off early.
The crossing guard at South School was glad to be back at work.
That’s what he told us when we walked to school this morning.
Parents didn’t seem to be dragging their children to their classrooms.
When school let out at noon, the buses were lined up.
