While there have been many changes in the Riverhead Central School District due to COVID-19, one thing remained the same on the first day of school — the excitement of students as they met their new teachers.
Students across the district smiled through their masks as they were happily welcomed back to school by teachers, staff and administrators. As the day got underway, the students were instructed in new health and safety protocols and quickly adjusted as they began a full day of learning.
“We are thrilled to welcome our students back to school,” said interim Superintendent of Schools Christine Tona. “While this was not a typical first day of school, it was certainly successful, with students following guidelines and eager to learn.”
