The sounds of car doors slamming surrounded the outside of Junaluska Elementary School as students trudged into school for their first day on Wednesday morning.

Inside, the squeak of new tennis shoes echoed through the hallways as children made their way to their new class — meeting teachers and hugging old friends in the process.

The first day of school dismissed at noon on Wendnesday, and school will be held at regular schedule for the rest of the week.
