Like many of their counterparts across the state, students in grades 1 through 8 returned to the Salemwood School in Malden Tuesday.
Teacher Emily Weinberg led her class in a discussion of how the children were feeling on their first day of school. Tired, nervous, scared, excited, happy, and good were some of the responses.
In Brockton, school starts Wednesday. At Marvelous Cuts barber shop, a long line of boys waited to get a trim before the big day.
Owner Alexander Daluz said he typically sees about 100 customers walk through the door daily. But he was on pace Tuesday to break a record, with more than 100 customers served before 4 p.m.
Daluz predicted he would see over 200 by day’s end. “We have a good flow of customers coming in and out,” Daluz said. “But on a busy day like that, it can really really be very jam-packed in here.”
Boston public schools won’t be back in session until after Labor Day next week.
