"They're excited to see their teachers," Principal Shauvon Ray said. "They're excited to see familiar faces. Our parents are excited because there's so much that's going around. And our staff is excited because I don't think we've seen this much of a turnout in a long time and we really need that to kick off the school year."

Free backpacks and haircuts were also offered at the event.
