Schools are officially open for business, as kids in Wilmington and many in Blanchester and in Clinton-Massie had their first day of the 2022-23 school year on Wednesday.

As always, thank you to the many News Journal readers who posted their first-day photos on our Facebook page. In the first seven hours (starting at 6 a.m.) Wednesday, well over 200 photos were posted.

Please keep the photos coming as more Massie students return to school later in the week, with Blanchester K/PS and WCA students beginning next week, and East Clinton starts Sept. 6.
