Tuesday was the first day of school for more than 70,000 Long Beach Unified School District students and more than 3,000 teachers. All of them are doing something new this year: virtual learning. The LBUSD will be online only through at least Oct. 5, with classes conducted on home computers or district-issued Chromebooks until then.
We asked what your first day of school looks like and we ended up with more than 500 reader-submitted selfies, snapshots and pictures of student setups:

First day of 2nd grade! He was so nervous to get the day going but just logged in to see 4 of his friends are back from last year. He also opted to work out of the living room today since “he’s been in his room all summer.” 🙄🙄 Pray for us and we’ll be doing the same for all our fellow virtual learners!!! #virtuallearning #secondgrade #babydanny
