Horseheads, N.Y. (WENY) – It's that time of year again. School is back in session for several school districts. Today was the first day back for the Horseheads School District.

Faculty members and teachers have been back for about a month now to set up their classrooms and prepare for the school year. This morning, school administrators lined up outside the Ridge Road Elementary School and held up signs to greet students.

The school's principal talked about how it can be difficult to transition students from the summer break to the academic year. She says bedtime and having a daily routine can be a difficult adjustment, especially for the younger students.

Overall, the district is excited for another year full of teaching, learning and fun.
