Share Your First Day of School Photos

We're looking for the best pics & clips of the kids heading off to school.


The return of the school year is one of those classic American traditions — and so is the practice of taking photos of the kids on their way to school.

If you've got a kid [or kids] attending Woonsocket schools, WoonsocketPatch wants to feature your photos and video from their first day of the 2012-13 school year.

Just click the "upload photos and videos" link — and start sharing your best shots!

I don't have photo but I do have a question/comment: Who is the genius that put a bus stop in the middle of the Hamlet Avenue Bridge? This is the second year now that a group of children are being picked up by a First Student bus (not a Woonsocket bus) in the middle of the Hamlet Ave. Bridge. Isn't there enough traffic on that road in the morning without having parents park on the side of Davidson Street and a bus stopping in the middle of the Bridge? Someone should take a picture of that mess at 7:15 in the morning!

I'll check for a number on the bus tomorrow. I've spoken to a School Committee member and they stated it is not a Woonsocket School Bus but a state bus for "First Student". Whatever that means? They could easily move this bus stop to a much safer location for everyone, the children and the drivers.

So I tried to add captions to the pics of my son Ty getting ready for 1st grade at Bernon Heights, but couldn't figure it out. LOL He was SUPER EXCITED to start 1st grade :)

If you e-mail it to me, robert@patch.com, I can add it for you - Once it's loaded to the site, I don't think you can edit the captions on your end. Thanks for sending us the photos!
