Students throughout the area were back in their routines and looked comfortable with slipping back into school days. Take a look at some of the scenes of the day in above photo gallery at dismissal time for Knollwood and Viola L. Sickles schools in Fair Haven, and Deane-Porter, Forrestdale and Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School in Rumson. If you have any back-to-school photos of your own you'd like to share, please either upload them right to this story (by following the prompts) or email them to email@example.com.
