Gallery: The 11 Sets of Twins Attending One Long Island Kindergarten

By

There are 191 students this year at Long Island’s Lynbrook Kindergarten Center, and 22 of them — 12 percent — are twins: one set identical, the other ten fraternal. Ellen Postman, the school’s principal, tries to (and this year did) split up all the siblings into separate classes, encouraging them to make new friends rather than lean on each other. “And then,” she adds, “they’re together at recess, when they go out to the playground, and they can share their new relationships.” Lots of them.
