The kids are starting to head back to school today, with Desoto Parish students returning to the classrooms.  Are your kids ready to go back?

The best advice for parents from multiple school experts is to make sure your kids are in the classroom today, even if you don't have all of the supplies together.

Also, be careful driving on local roadways.  Children may not always pay attention to everything happening around them and may dart inadvertently into the road.  Obey the speed limits and remember the school zones have lower speed limits.

But, this could be a very special time of year for you.  Send in your best back-to-school photos and you could win yourself a $300 Walmart gift card.

Bossier students return to school on the 8th, Caddo and Webster students return to the classroom next Monday, the 12th.
