Brock Elementary students and parents - set your alarms. The first day of school is tomorrow.

The school is starting their first year on a year-round schedule. The open first thing in the morning and they'll stay open almost year round.

Kids and parents piled in Sunday for the open house. The kids loved meeting their new teachers and kicking off the new year.

The board of directors tell us they expected backlash from parents about the year-round school proposal. They were a little surprised, saying the feedback was overwhelming. 

They say at least 95 percent of parents think this is the best thing to happen to their kids. They're excited and so are the teachers.

"The extended school calendar will definitely give students more time to get what they need and get more than what they need," said Kemira Harrison, Special Education Teacher.

We spoke with kids as they left the open house and they say they were on their way home to pack their backpacks and pick out their first day clothes.
