Juneau School District began the school year Monday by opening classes with new start times for all grades and welcoming kids at two elementary schools that were completely remodeled.
Parent Reuben Willis said his family had no trouble getting up early for his elementary-school-aged children to begin the year at Harborview, one of two schools that opened Monday with new paint, carpet and furniture, among other changes.
Willis said his children were up an hour and a half early Monday, excited to get started and go to their "new" school.
"It's like Christmas morning," Willis said.
