Days like today are normally flooded with parents posting pictures before they head off to school. However, today's Facebook feeds were overloaded with pictures of the solar eclipse... even though "experts" warned of looking at the sun directly without eye protection even if it's on a screen. Thanks for trying to blind myself and everyone that didn't waste time driving around for said glasses.

Anyway, the first day of school for RPS 205 students has come and gone and, for some parents, it was more exciting the solar eclipse. Here are a few of the back-to-school photos shared by proud Rockford parents.
