Ethan Lancaster, a kindergarten student at Pratt Elementary, hops out of the car Monday morning, ready for the first day of school.

Ethan and all other students in the Sand Springs School District can look forward to 175 days of instruction, with the last day of classes coming May 22, 2013.

If that seems too long off, Thanksgiving Break is scheduled for Nov. 21, with students returning to class Nov. 26.

With students now back in school, Sand Springs police remind drivers the speed limit in school zones is 20 mph.
