One-by-one, the children who attend Solano Christian Academy walked through the front door and down a red carpet complete with track lights and a red velvet rope.
Cameras snapped pictures. Fairfield Mayor Harry Price shook their hands and welcomed them to the first day of school. A photographer took them aside for even more pictures.
There was a sense of deja vu for children such as eighth-grader Morgan Hearn. He’s attended the school since preschool and has been part of the red carpet walk since its inception three years ago.
“It’s pretty cool,” he said. Morgan was more interested in catching up with friends he hadn’t seen over the summer than dealing with paparazzi.
