EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso area school districts are showing their support for students and staff with Uvalde CISD as they return to school Tuesday.

Schools are asking students and staff to wear maroon and white Tuesday. Maroon and white are the school colors of Uvalde CISD.

The small gesture is a way to show solidarity with the community and send warm wishes as the school year begins.

This comes three months after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School that left 19 children and two teachers dead.

School district across Texas including El Paso are participating in the initiative.

No students or staff will return to Robb Elementary, the site of the deadliest school massacre in almost a decade. The school will be demolished and rebuilt.
