NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It was a common scene today here in North Philadelphia.
The students arrived at Mastery's Frederick Douglass Elementary School wearing their first day best and a smile.
Along with their teachers, police officers from the 22nd district were there to welcome the students back to class.
Jinnely Davidson-Asst Principal worked to ease the transition for the students "the first day of school can have a lot of anxiety and feelings of stress for everyone around for parents, students and teachers, and we really wanted to have members of the community particularly police officers- bridge the gap between officers and the community."
We wish the best of luck to all the students in our region as they head back to school.
Community comes together for first day of school
