CHAMPAIGN -- Some students already have their first day of school under their belts. Unit 4's Kenwood Elementary School started its school year Friday.

It's on a "balanced calendar" which means students have a shorter summer break, but longer ones between classes throughout the year. Students say they're ready to start the year.

Barkstall Elementary is also on a balanced calendar. Students there started Friday as well.
