Ringing in the 2021-22 school year
WEBUTUCK — For many Harlem Valley students, families and teachers, the first day of school means a fresh start. And following last year, switching between remote and in-person instruction, students were enthusiastic to start the 2021-22 academic year in-person on Tuesday, Sept. 7, at Webutuck Elementary School in Amenia.
Whether they took the school bus or were driven to school by their families, students walked into their respective school buildings masked up and with backpacks, lunch bags and other school supplies at the ready.
Along with greeting the children as they entered school, teachers helped direct students to their classrooms, doing everything possible to make sure everyone felt welcome and prepared for the new year.
