Warm Welcome Back in West Babylon

West Babylon School District welcomed back students and staff for the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Students were all smiles as they kicked off the new year with plenty of smiles and sunshine to start their day on Sept. 5.

With their backpacks filled with new school supplies, the elementary students were eager to start the school year, meet their teachers, and reconnect with their friends. The district’s youngest learners met with their teachers and explored their new classrooms and buildings prior to the start of the school year.

At West Babylon Junior High School and West Babylon Senior High School, teachers, staff members and administrators greeted students at the building entrances. The incoming sixth grade and ninth grade students familiarized themselves with their buildings, lockers and schedule during their respective orientations prior to the start of the school year.
