The first day of school was full of smiles and jitters Thursday in Vacaville.
Emmanuel Robles, 11, was looking forward to getting together with his friends at Fairmont Charter Elementary School.
“I’m kind of happy to be going back to school, because I get to see my friends,” he said.
He stayed in touch by email and telephone over the summer, but he said it’s not the same as being with your friends.
“There are so many ways to stay connected like the Internet,” he said. “We have been talking all summer.”
