It’s back to school today for the Southwest Region School District. Students in the district's seven communities are cracking open their text books and getting a start on a new year of reading, writing and arithmetic. Clark’s Point is reopening its school for the first time since it closed five years ago due to low enrollment. On opening day, it has 15 students enrolled. KDLG’s Avery Lill was there for back-to-school night on Sunday.
