Behind the scenes: First day of school

 

Nearly 62,000 students in the Treasure Valley were up bright and early Monday morning to head back to school. The first day of school is an exciting and nervous time for parents and students, but also a crazy time for principals, teachers and secretaries. Idaho EdNews grabbed a camera and tagged along with Adams Elementary School staff in Boise, to find out what happens behind the scenes on the first day.
