Parents in Uvalde school district concerned as kids go back to school (includes video story)

Today is the first day of classes in the Uvalde, Texas school district. Parents and students still have reservations about returning to class. Their main concern is whether the officers will be the same ones who were at Robb Elementary on the day of the shooting.

“They won’t give us an answer whether it’s going to be the same people, the same school resource officers that were there,” said concerned Uvalde parent Adam Martinez.  

The community came together over the weekend for a festival where the theme was Uvalde Strong — in honor of the 21 victims.  

“Even though the pain is still there we can enjoy what little life there is because life is short, you never know what can happen,” said Zammarh Martinez, a festival-goer.

Robb Elementary remains closed. Students were split among neighboring schools and home or online schooling.
