Wilton schools are back in session

It may still be August, but vacation is over in Wilton as children of all ages went back to school on Tuesday, Aug. 27.

But they won’t be in school for long until their first holiday — Labor Day — on Monday, Sept. 2, followed by Rosh Hashanah on Monday, Sept. 30.

There were a number of new faces at the schools on opening day.

Five new teachers at Miller-Driscoll School, four at Cider Mill School, two at Middlebrook School, and 11 at Wilton High School.
