Summer officially came to an end for Baltimore City students Monday, as they began their first day of school.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was out of City Hall and in classrooms across the city, welcoming kids back from break.
She started her day visiting John Eager Howard and Westside Elementary School. Then, the mayor stopped by to check on the girls at Lilli May Carroll Jackson school, who have already been back for two weeks. With the array of schools in the district, Rawlings-Blake said parents are able to make the decision on where their child can receive their education.
