BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT)— Students from Mt. Laurel Elementary were happy to celebrate their first day back for a second time.

Last week was supposed to mark the school’s official first day back but they had to cancel due to a car accident on Hwy. 41 that caused a power outage. The school’s power was lost and they were forced to close the school that day.

Thursday marked the official first day back to school for the students.

A couple of students even made signs saying, “1st Day of School Take 2.”
