HUNTINGTON — It’s the annual time across the Tri-State where many children head back into the classroom. As book bags are slung across a shoulder and lunch boxes are packed with afternoon treats, kids are headed back to school. Every year has one tradition, lace up those shoes and say “cheese” because it’s time to pose for those first day photographs.

Here are a few photographs submitted by Herald Dispatch readers.

Whether it’s your child’s very first, first day of school or their first day of senior year in high school, we know it’s a day for making memories that last a lifetime.
