HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — Students in Southside Hampton Roads and other parts of the region are returning to the classroom Tuesday.

You can watch live coverage here.

This comes after thousands of students across the Peninsula and Northeast North Carolina had already returned before Labor Day weekend.

WAVY has team coverage all through the morning Tuesday, with bus and traffic information from WAVY’s Madison Pearman. Brett Hall is live from Virginia Beach, Hayley Milon is in Norfolk and Aesia Toliver is in Chesapeake.

In addition some shortages of faculty, bus drivers and cafeteria workers in the region, there are also some changes in the classroom for students. Virginia Beach City Public Schools students have a new cell phone policy that requires them to keep their phones in their backpacks during class time.

We’re also celebrating back-to-school with photos of the WAVY staff when they were in school. Don Robert’s afro was incredible.

Don’t forget school staff in Virginia can get a free hot coffee at Wawa through the end of September by just mentioning they work at a school.
