Tens of thousands of students poured back into classrooms throughout Wisconsin on Tuesday.


There were some anxious moments for students who wanted to spend just a few more moments with their parents before they embarked on their educational adventures. One Lincoln Elementary School teacher comforted a student in the hallway as he cried, possibly because he was afraid to be away from his parents and in an unknown environment for the first time.
