The first day of public school yesterday marked the opening of a new elementary school in Woodside.
P.S. 361, or the Woodside Community School, is located at 39-07 57th St. About 100 Kindergarten and pre-K students started class yesterday, according to the Community Education Council for the school district.
The school will grow each year to eventually serve about 500 students in grades pre-K through five.
The school building is also currently hosting fifth and sixth graders from nearby P.S. 11, while that school undergoes construction for an addition that will address its severe overcrowding.
