GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) -- Sending your child to school for the first time can be tough. That's what parents all over Glasgow did on Wednesday as the city schools went back into session.
At Highland Elementary parents helped their students get comfortable in the classroom before heading to work for the day. There were some emotional goodbyes, but parents and students have complete faith that they're in good hands.
"For some of them it's very difficult to separate especially on the first day for the younger kids. We work with the parents very well and when most of them end up leaving the campus the kids have a great day," said Glasgow Independent Schools Superintendent, Sean Howard.
Superintendent Howard said he gets nervous before the first day of school too. Mainly because he wants to make sure each and every student has a way to school. He said this year's number one priority is safety.
