REDDING, Calif. -

Tuesday was another first day for many elementary and middle school students in the Nortstate. According to the principal, Turtle Bay School in Redding was bustling with about 800 students kick off the year.

First grader Amelia Rocca said she loves being back at school because she loves learning new things.

"You get to think and it makes you smarter," said Amelia.

For the Turtle Bay School faculty, teachers said it was a mixture of excitement and nervousness.

First grade teacher Brenda Rocca said there is nothing better than the first-day feeling.

"It’s just a lot of energy and a lot of excitement getting to see the new personalities of each student and seeing how we are gonna work together, its just exciting," said Rocca.

Now that school season upon is in session its important to remember to always stop for a school bus when its red lights are flashing. The minimum fine for failing to stop for the flashing red lights on a school bus is $649 dollars.
