First Day of School: Post Your Photos

For many parents, children heading out the door with a backpack for the first time.

The Sachem School District opened its doors today at all 18 of its schools, ringing in the 2012-2013 school year.

Patch has opened this gallery encouraging Sachem residents to send in photos of your little ones (or older ones) heading off to school.

So far we have Brandon Esposito, who helped his little sister Giulia get on the bus for her first day at Lynwood Elementary.

Also, 4th-grader Logan Gilchrist headed off to Nokomis Elementary School this morning as a new transfer to the district.

"Today was his 1st day ever in Sachem SD and he loved it," emailed his mother Heather Gilchrist. Logan's teacher is Mrs. Nangle.

And some children attending Waverly Avenue await their bus ride at the Summerfield Day Care Facility in Holtsville.

If you have more pictures, send them to matthew.mcgevna@patch.com.
