Students Share Emotions About First Day of Classes at Permian, OHS

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

There were mixed emotions for Permian and Odessa High students Tuesday morning. That's because it was the first day of school.

Although construction delayed classes for two weeks, many students were ready to get back into the groove.

It was a familiar sight to those commute down 42nd St. The back to school traffic has officially started.

We asked incoming freshman, Christopher Reddick, how he felt about his first day of high school at Permian.

"It's crazy!" he replied.

A few more weeks of summer, and many were already itching for a comeback.

"I was kind of excited for school to come...I like school," said Reddick.

This year, it's not just newcomers trying to find their way. The new additions to campus have those even in their final year of high school asking for directions.

"I've been having to ask a lot of teachers where to go and everything, but it's been great all day long," said Permian High School Senior, Brianne Winfrey.

As a new group of freshman made it's way onto an unfamiliar campus, upperclassmen wasted no time sharing some early survival tips.

"Don't try to do too much at one time. Try to keep your day spaced out," said Permian Junior, Logan Arocha.

"Try to stay relaxed. The first day is always stressful trying to find your classes. Just don't get overwhelmed," said Permian Junior, Hannah Murphy.

Football has continued as normal with the exception of Permian's homecoming bumped up a few weeks to October 9th.

"Football season. Everybody loves football season. It's a great time of the year," said Winfrey.

District administration tells us there will still be two days set aside in case of bad weather.

To make up the time lost due to construction, ECISD says they will add 25 extra minutes of classes each day for the 2015-2016 school year.
