More than 6,200 Vikings filed into Cape schools Sept. 7 to kick off the 2022-23 academic year, in what is sure to be an attendance record for the district.

This year is also the first time since 2016 that the district has not simultaneously opened a new building; the new Lewes Elementary welcomed students in April.

Despite the rain and heavier traffic, principals reported a smooth morning drop-off with lots of smiles from children.
