Litchfield’s four schools opened their doors for business on Wednesday in signaling an end to a long, hot summer vacation.

At Center School, students were greeted by new Principal Abe Ammary, a former sixth-grade teacher at Central Elementary School in Simsbury.

Ammary succeeds Sherri Turner, who is now the superintendent of schools. Intermediate school Principal Jennifer Murphy and her staff welcomed students while middle school Principal Stephanie Kubisek and high school Principal Kristen Della Volpe did the same with staff at their schools.

Students at the intermediate school wait in the cafeteria before heading to their classrooms.
