Sept. 3 marked the first day of school for Loudoun County's 70,855 students attending 55 elementary schools, 14 middle schools and 13 high schools.
But at two schools, it wasn't just the first day of the year, it was the first day – ever.
Moorefield Station and Discovery elementary schools, both built this year in Ashburn, welcomed students to Loudoun's newest schools amid fanfare.
At Discovery, the Broad Run marching band blasted music triumphantly as parents walked their students to the front door. The faculty waved as children with backpacks nearly as large as them tottered into the school. James Dallas, the new principal of Discovery, bounced between guiding traffic and greeting everyone.
Three miles away, Moorefield Station soaked in a similar situation. Motivational sayings and pictures, drawn in colorful chalk by the parents the night before, awaited the students, who came on bus, foot and bicycle.
