First day of school
The summer vanished all too quickly for area students. Monday was the first day of school in the Sonoma Valley Unified School District. At El Verano Elementary School, 5-year-old Ty Clark, a kindergarten student in Barbara Marek’s class, was playing with some plastic shapes while his parents, Stephanie and Jason looked on. Other area schools will be starting classes various days over the next week. Motorists should be aware of students going to and from school and remember to stop for buses.
