Was the first day of school for more than a thousand students on the ridge.
As action news now reporter amy lanski shows us..
Students are being reunited..
And they're also making new friends.
### "yeah i teared up when i pulled into school today because i am so excited."
Kathy peppas works at cedarwood elementary where her granddaughter goes to school.
She said after the camp fire they weren't sure what would happen this year.
Peppas: "because we weren't really sure how this was all going to shake out and if we were actually going to have enough families for our school district."
Amy standup: "a couple of the students here, at cedarwood elementary said, they are most excited about seeing their friends again."
Freya degischer: student: "because we have new kids in our class.
"why are new kids exciting?"
"you can play with them more and you don't know as much about them."
Khloe murray: student: "she is one of them, my cousin was here for two years, but she is going to another school this year, i have another friend who is in a different third grade class."
But friends weren't the only thing these two girls were excited for... degischer: "when we are in third grade we do this thing called ketchup and relish and it's like if you ar ein ketchup you get to do work you didn't finish so you have to catch up on it.
If you are in relish you get to go to art and play games and movies."
Murray: "hmm like sitting at my desk and listening to the teacher."
Both cedarwood and pine ridge elementary were expecting about 250 students today..
But school board staff said next week they will have more accurate numbers.
