The West Hempstead School District welcomed new and returning students for the 2021-22 school year on Sept. 1. The students kicked off their first day with enthusiasm as they arrived at their schools ready for a new academic year. Students were eager to return, see old friends and meet their new teachers.
For the kindergarten students at Chestnut Street School, the first day was made extra special thanks to a warm welcome from administrators and staff. Students settled into their classrooms quickly and participated in several activities to get to know their teachers and one another.
