Students leaving a bus

On buses, in cars, by foot…

Over 700 students returned to Cleveland school this week with high school classes starting on Tuesday and younger students beginning on Thursday.

There were smiles, hugs and a few tears too.

Over 50 kindergarteners are enrolled and 67 preschoolers. There are 45 students in the senior class.
