Student attendance for the first day in Hillsborough County was 196,822, a slight dip from last year's opening day count of  197,064.

Those numbers cover all students in preschool through 12th grade, including charter schools.

With the year beginning so early, district officials don't expect an accurate count just yet.

"It is not unexpected that our numbers are relatively flat with school starting on a Thursday," said Superintendent Jeff Eakins. "We will continue to monitor the enrollment numbers on Monday. We are a growing county and typically between the first and 5th day, we have an increase of about 10,000 students."
