Ceasar Ordaz tries to comfort his less-than-happy son Julian, 5, before the boy heads to kindergarten on the first day of school. Julian is attending the new Esmond Station K-8 School, 9400 S. Atterbury Wash Way, in the Vail School District. Ordaz, who is in the Air National Guard, has had to leave his son before while on deployment overseas. The Vail district is getting a three-week head start as classes resume well ahead of the Tucson Unified School District.
