CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Students and teachers aren’t the only ones headed back to class– summer is over for school resource officers, too!
School resource officers across the country, including in western Massachusetts, are taking part in the viral #SROchallenge by posting their version of traditional first-day-of-school photos!
“As you can see by this photo, they are enthused, excited, elated, refreshed, and cannot wait for Day 1,” Chicopee police posted on Facebook.
West Springfield High School’s school resource officer also took part in the challenge, posing with his pink lunch box and bright blue backpack.
“High School Resource Officer Rob Wise has officially finished his First Day of High School (Again)!!!” The department wrote on Facebook.
Here are some other #SROchallenge photos from around the country:
TIME FOR BACK TO SCHOOL!! And a few of our Youth Resource Deputies (YRDs) decided to take their first day of school photos. One of them doesn’t look very happy to be going back, but the other two are thrilled!!
