First day of school for many students

It's the first day of school for several districts across southwestern Connecticut.

Students in Milford, Wilton, Fairfield, Easton/Redding, Stratford, Stamford, Amity, Norwalk, and New Canaan all start classes today.

The start of the school year had been pushed back because of damage and cleanup efforts following Tropical Storm Irene.

Greenwich schools will hold orientation today, with classes starting tomorrow.
