Students in Melissa Lopez’s second-grade class at Yeso Elementary School pose for a photo with decorative signs brightening the elementary’s yard on the first day of school Monday in Artesia. Classes were back in session (and Facebook feeds full of photos) for all schools but the local kindergarten, which will begin Monday.
