Back in the saddle again

I'm a retired math teacher of 25 years. I have missed teaching and have been out of the loop for 6 years. I have recently chosen to teach again. I just took a 5th grade math position and I feel like I'm starting all over. I taught 25 years in one district at mostly 5-8 grade levels with much success in student growth and state testing scores.
I don't know where to start!! I feel like I've never been in a classroom before!!
My classes will be 90 minute blocks. When I left I gave all my resources of 25 years away thinking I would never use them again. Boy was that a mistake!!!
What should I ask before I start? I don't even know where to begin considering I've always been at the same district. I knew curriculum, discipline policies, etc.....
Now, its all new and I feel lost. Any ideas on where to start? Discipline, curriculum, structure, homework, etc...???
