Parents have a hard time dropping off kids on the first day of school

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - For thousands of students on the South Plains, Monday was the first day of school.

Their backpacks are full and their lunches are packed, the kids at Whiteside Elementary School were ready for their first day, but were their parents? "Usually the joke is how many tears did you have this morning, well the kids were fine, it was the parents that weren't," said Whiteside Principal Chris Brown.

Brown says he sees all kinds of emotions on the first day of school. "Parents are sometimes pretty nervous, and sometimes they are like here you go, I'm out the door," said Brown.

Although Karen Watts has been through this before dropping off her 5th and 3rd grader on Monday morning was still a little tough. "I've done the best this year than usual, usually I'm like sad, but this year I did pretty good," said Watts.

For James Crawford, it was a first for him as he dropped off his son for the start of Pre-K. When asked if it was a hard day for him he said, "Yes more so than I thought it was going to be, but this is a good school."

While the start of another school year has come and gone, Brown says he is only excited for the future. "We have a lot of good teachers and a lot of great kids, and wonderful PTA, and a lot of stuff going on, but learning is number one and we'll get started off day one learning what we need to learn and go from there," said Brown.
