First Day of School in New Britain

Schools opened in New Britain Tuesday welcoming students, many of whom were getting used to new surroundings.  In a push to reestablish “neighborhood schools,” the city underwent redistricting that reassigned many students.  Here are some scenes from the first day at Vance Village Elementary School, a K-5 school with a student body of about 500 children.
