Children across the Hudson Valley and much of the United States packed their backpacks and lunch boxes and embarked on another school year.

You know exactly what I'm talking about. Those adorable Back-To-School photos that come with a little sign that details the student's hopes and dreams, what grade they're in, and some of their favorite things.

Town of Chester Police Department Heads Back to School?

Police Officers from The Town of Chester Police Department who also work as School Resource Officers headed back to school earlier this week. The Town of Chester Police Department wrote on Facebook:

Today was the first day of school for all three districts in the town (Chester, Monroe-Woodbury and Warwick Valley). Since everyone else seems to be sharing their "First Day of School" photos, we didn't want to be left out! Here are some pics of our School Resource Officers who are assigned to the schools in the Chester Union Free School District.

They add that while the officers won't be taking classes now,  Officer DeLuca and Officer Donato did take classes last month to become certified School Resources officers and are joining Officer Perez who has been an SRO for the last 5 years.

Take a look at some of the Back-to-School photoshoot fun the Town of Chester Police Department had on social media below:
