Cool and Ready for School

Back to School—February Edition

Standing out in the cold for the bus, Rebecca Peterson snapped a photo of her three kids. “It was the first day back to in-person school for all three of my kids together in 2021,” Peterson says. “The two younger ones had been back sporadically, but on this day my kindergartener, second grader and fifth grader all went back to in-person school.”

Back to School—February Edition, was awarded Runner Up in the People category of the 2021 Images of Edina photo contest. Peterson says that day “felt almost as special as the traditional fall first day of school. I love that it’s a back-to-school picture but a sign of the times—the kids are in their masks, and they have full, heavy backpacks.”
