High-five. Here are a few headlines.

OKC Public schools are in session

Kids got a rainy start to the school year Tuesday in OKC. Check out the coverage by The Oklahoman's Tim Willert. 

Superintendent Aurora Lora visited with children, toured the school and read with prekindergarten students.

Lora even comforted a boy who started to cry when he realized his cousin was in a different classroom.

"Kids are happy. Teachers are happy. I think it's going to be a great year, she said. "Kids are excited to be back. Everyone loves summer, but sometimes you want to get back and see your friends and have things to do again."
