The 80,000-student school district has added more than 50 fans since officials sent out a mass phone message at about noon on Saturday reminding families that classes resume today. The message asked families to be sure to post or send in photos from the first day of school and to follow the district on Twitter.
"We've gotten a huge response to it," said district spokeswoman Barbara Griffith. "People are so proud of their kids."
From their page: "Good morning! Send us your photo that best illustrates the 'First Day of School' in the Fort Worth ISD. The photo that receives the most "likes" will win a basket of FWISD goodies. Submit your photos to [email protected] along with a line explaining who or what is featured."
Here's where to get back to school information for Fort Worth ISD.
