Iredell County Sheriff’s Office deputies were at all Iredell-Statesville Schools Thursday morning for the first day of classes.

“We were honored and blessed to assist school administrators, meet and welcome back the children, as well as help parents who may have been shedding a tear or two,” Sheriff Darren Campbell said. “We are much more comfortable today knowing more deputies are on the premises of our schools. This will be a first for many in our elementary schools.”
