For a brief moment, it looked like the hallways of Solano Middle School would never clear as students, teachers, and parents clogged the narrow spaces early Monday morning for the first day of classes.
It was a new era for the school on Corcoran Avenue, as kindergarten through fifth-grade students from Elsa Widenmann Elementary School officially joined the new campus — forming the hybrid elementary/middle school of about 800 students.
“It was a bit chaotic,” said parent Carmela, who declined to give her last name. Carmela dropped off her little one for the first day of the fourth grade.
