WARRICK CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Area schools are wrapping up their first week back to the classrooms in the pandemic.
Warrick County Schools, like many, are taking this all one day at a time.
As they head into this new semester, they bring a lot of hope from what they were able to learn last fall.
They say going back to in-person classes is what helps keep their students on track.
With precautions they have in place, they are hopeful that students will be able to stay in-person as long as they are taking those precautions even outside of the classroom.
“We really need people to stay away from large group gatherings,” said Warrick Co. Schools Superintendent Brad Schneider. “That’s been an issue, and I think as we start the second semester, you’ve seen the local numbers on COVID cases, we’re pretty certain that the Christmas gatherings and people gathering in large groups is the reason for the spike.”
The school district says they are doing everything they can inside the school to keep students and staff safe, so they are asking the same from families after they leave school at the end of the day.
Warrick County Schools are hopeful that the vaccine will help them make it through the end of this school year successfully.
They tell us their students and teachers have been resilient through all of this, and they are proud of them for their hard work.
