Welcome back! New school year begins at North Fork districts: Photos

The staff at Cutchogue East Elementary School welcomed back students on the first day of school Thursday.

The Mattituck-Cutchogue Union Free School District was one of many across the county — including Southold — to begin Thursday, while others such as Greenport start on Tuesday after Labor Day.

Students and teachers seemed excited to be back, ahead of an academic year that’s expected to restore a sense of normalcy after nearly three years of pandemic disruptions.
