The first day of school can be trying for students. In the past several days, several Jefferson County Public schools have been preparing Kindergarteners for Tuesday’s first day of class. Photographer Amber Sigman headed to Shelby Elementary School near Shelby Street to capture the scenes of Kindergarteners and other students heading off to school.

Jefferson County Public Schools officials tell WFPL that the morning drop-offs went well. They’ve had issues with the afternoon transportation in years past, however. 

Earlier, WFPL’s Devin Katayama headed to Middletown Elementary to talk to parents dropping off Kindergarteners for the first time.
