It had been six months since a student had entered the Block Island School, but that all changed on Thursday, Sept. 3, when kindergarten teacher Mrs. Hart welcomed Tess Helterline and her parents, Leslie and Wyatt, for Tess’s morning orientation.

Tess picked out her locker, her seat, and chose which friend she wanted to be seated near. Mrs. Hart went over some of the protocols for the class, and went through the names of Tess’s classmates.

The Block Island School will open for Tess and her classmates (as well as for grades one through eight) on Monday, Sept. 14. — Photos and text by Lars Trodson.
