Classes in the Ferguson-Florissant School District were scheduled to begin Aug. 14, five days after Michael Brown's shooting death. But street protests marred by sometimes-violent clashes between police and demonstrators led to several delays.

Students, teachers and parents say they are eager to return to their routines. Many described school as a place of refuge from the images of police in riot gear, tear gas and armored vehicles.

Brown was a recent graduate of Normandy High School, where classes resumed as scheduled last week.
