Good morning everyone. It's Christine Sperow. Happy first day of school! We're keeping track of the big day today. We have information to share about how this is going to affect your day whether you have a child starting school today or not. Turn on WBTV News This Morning as soon as you wake up! We're live until 7 a.m.

These are the school districts starting school today:

Rock Hill Schools


Fort Mill, Chester

York District One






WEATHER: Some roads wet from rain overnight

Our meteorologists are making sure you have the most accurate info as you wake up. There were thunderstorms and rain in some neighborhoods so watch out for roads to still be wet as you wake up. Meteorologist Al Conklin is tracking what's happening right now where you live. Plus, Meteorologist Lyndsay Tapases is in Storm 3 monitoring road conditions and will have the bus stop forecast for the next five days!

TEAM COVERAGE: WBTV's Micah Smith is reporting live from Indian Land in Lancaster County. She's monitoring the new roundabout installed near Harrisburg Elementary School and how that will be impacting traffic to the school. We're also seeing what the first day of school will be like for the newly built Van Wyck Elementary School. WBTV's Kristi O'Connor is also in South Carolina where Rock Hill School leaders say early projections show this could be the largest enrollment the district has ever seen.

What do you think about retirees serving as School Resource Officers? It's a law that Lancaster County school leaders are calling 'puzzling.' We'll tell you why.

BREAKING NEWS: Gunfire and multiple arrests were made at a nightclub in Charlotte. The scene is still active right now at World Nightclub on NC Music Factory Boulevard in Charlotte. WBTV's Caroline Hicks was first to report this on social media. She's getting new details on the scene on what sparked the violence. Watch for her live report right at 5 a.m.

The Cleveland County deputy who was shot earlier this week has been released from the hospital. Our cameras were there as Deputy Tim Sims leaving the hospital and waving to our cameras. We'll show that to you at 6 a.m.
