Riverhead elementary school students said their last good-byes to teachers and fellow students Friday afternoon.

Phillips Avenue Elementary held its traditional “clap off” event, with students and teachers lining the school’s hallways, clapping and waving as the fourth graders, who are moving up to Pulaski Street Elementary School, marched by.

Phillips principal Debra Rodgers and associate principal Stephen Hudson said goodbye to 562 students.
