School is almost here! KELOLAND News has compiled the latest education headlines along with supply lists. See our staff when they were in the classroom and we want to see your kids as they start the new school year.

Heading back to class can be an exciting time for students. From snapshots before our first bus ride to college graduations, photos help capture the emotion of the moment.

If you have photos you would like to share, email them to us at ushare@keloland.com. You can also use the KELOLAND News app to submit photos.
