Wednesday was the first day back to school at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School. Students filed into the classrooms under the direction of principal Thomas Payton and faculty.

It also marked the first day for students attending St. John Paul II Regional School. Students were greeted by principal Abby Swiatowski outside the school around 7:30 a.m.

The Diocese of Rockville Centre announced earlier this year that it would consolidate its East End elementary schools, Our Lady of Mercy in Cutchogue and St. Isidore in Riverhead. Those students are now attending the newly renamed St. John Paul II Regional School, located at the former St. Isidore building.
