Summer vacation continues for most kids, but not for the students at Discovery Charter School.

The school on Hoover Drive in Greece opened Monday. The school is in the former Odyssey Academy building.

Discovery used to be at Bishop Kearney in Irondequoit, but moved for the school year.

News10NBC was there Monday morning as students were coming into the building. Parents say the children are excited to learn, but it's tough to watch them go.

Jecahn Burnett said, "It's one of my son's first days, my other son's second year, my daughter's third year and she's going into second grade, my other son's going in to the first grade and I'm watching my other son go to the first grade and I'm teary eyed. I'm loving it, you know, he's a little nervous but I think he's going do excellent."
