Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - Students across the river in Moorhead have now joined those on the North Dakota side in going back to school.

Robert Asp Elementary was abuzz with students headed to their new classrooms.

Many parents were dropping off their kindergarten kids; some of whom will go for a full day, as Moorhead offers full-day kindergarten for the first time.

As Jill Thorsen dropped off her son, Carter, she said the full day change is a good thing.

Jill Thorsen- Kindergarten Parent: “I think it gets them ready more than just the half-day. They experience it. I think it's more beneficial that they get to have the full day and they go right into it for first grade and there's no change."
