Goodbye, summer.

Hello, school.

Starting Monday, Midlands public-school students will be heading back to classes. That brings a change of pace for many of us, from more hectic mornings to slower traffic for commuters, as school buses return to the roads.

And there are changes for students, too – from new teachers and new friends to new technologies and, in some cases, new schools.

Monday: Kershaw County, Lexington 1, Lexington 3, Richland 1

Tuesday: Lexington 2, Lexington 4, Lexington-Richland 5

Wednesday: Richland 2
