EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Students at Good Shepherd Catholic School headed back to school Thursday morning.

The Catholic Diocese of Evansville released its back-to-school plans in July. Those plans were in place this morning as masks were optional and social distancing wasn’t required.

Most students and parents opted for no masks, but the diocese says they welcome masks and anything that helps parents and students feel more comfortable.

Students could also be walked in by parents this year, which is much different from last year when they could only be dropped off.

Juniors and seniors also went back to school at Mater Dei on Thursday morning.

Freshmen and sophomores went back on Wednesday, which is something school officials did because of the pandemic.

A few other diocese schools that went back Thursday included students at Memorial, Christ the King, Holy Rosary and St. Phillip in Posey County.
