Kids Ready to Head Back to School

Posted: Updated:

Wild Island in Sparks was packed today as kids of all ages took in the sunshine and as many splashes as possible before heading back to school tomorrow.

"I'm kinda sorry to see the summer end but I got the teacher I want and am excited to go to school this year," said third grader Kenzie.

And most kids there were resigned that it was time to head back.

"It's like new beginnings for school and sad to see summer end. But we still have the weekends," added fifth grader Chloe.

And Wild Island is hoping kids and parents keep them in mind for any free time they have.

"We hope they take advantage of  this to cool off for a few hours after school and then they can do homework," Wild Island General Manager Scott Carothers said.

Wild Island will be open weekday afternoons from 3:30 - 7:00 p.m. through September 6th. And they'll be open on weekends too through September 21.
