NOW: MPS Early Start students head back to school Monday

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Most Milwaukee Public School kids won't go back to class for a couple of weeks, but some of them went back Monday.

Students showed up at Golda Meir School on Martin Luther King Drive Monday morning. The kids got a rousing welcome from a drumline and from parents, teachers, and even superintendent Dr. Keith Posley.

Milwaukee Alderwoman Chantia Lewis had three kids going back to school Monday, and she says they couldn't wait. 

"My kids didn't sleep last night, they were up before I was," said Ald. Lewis. The alarms were just going off, going off, going off, and it was their alarm, not mine. So they were really excited to get their outfits laid out and to just be here and to see their friends again, so this is one of their highlights."

Forty-three of MPS' 160 schools started Monday, including all of the high schools. The traditional first day of school this year is Sept. 3.
