Anne Arundel County began the local school year Monday, with students and parents sharing some excitement — and a bit of nervousness. The county's first- through fifth-, sixth- and ninth-grade students marked the opening wave of what county school officials say is a record enrollment: more than 75,500. Most of Anne Arundel's remaining students will return Tuesday , including those at more than a dozen campuses that had delayed starts because of construction. "I'm looking to do better in school than I did last year," said Tyrek Thornton of Glen Burnie, who is entering the sixth grade at Corkran Middle School in Glen Burnie.

Mother Nature has made her presence felt this year in Anne Arundel County. Storms in February dropped 2 feet of snow, cutting power to thousands of homes. Heavy rain last month forced the closure of roads and a sewage treatment plant. As part of their effort to help people prepare for such emergencies, county officials have scheduled a series of forums throughout the county, beginning tonight at the South County Senior Center. "One of the lessons we have learned ... in a disaster: We need to partner with members of the community," said County Executive Janet S. Owens.

"The schools had been closed for three days, and the heat had really built up," said spokeswoman Jane Doyle.
