Back to School Once More

Kids and teens are gearing up for school to start next week. Students in the East Hampton, Amagansett, and Springs districts return on Tuesday, while students in the Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton, Wainscott, and Sagaponack School Districts return on Wednesday. Montauk School is back in session next Thursday. That means there’re still a few days left to wrap up those summer reading lists, grab your school supplies, and pick out those first-day outfits. And don’t forget to sign up for Star Kids, The Star’s weekly education newsletter, by visiting
