Incoming and returning students across the Riverhead Central School District were ready for the school year when they entered their buildings on Sept. 4.

Carrying backpacks and lunch boxes, students made a seamless transition from summer vacation to classroom learning at each of the district’s schools. Within an hour of arrival, they were busy at their desks learning, whether it was kindergartners coloring “welcome to kindergarten” sheets at Phillips Avenue Elementary School or Pulaski Street fifth graders building towers out of marshmallows and spaghetti.
