Teachers in the Bement school district are ready for students to return for onsite learning in the fall.
Bement Superintendent Dr. Sheila Greenwood indicates she surveyed her teachers recently and one hundred percent of her staff were in agreement with students returning.
Dr. Greenwood notes in-person learning is especially important for early education. Students at that age are learning the fundamentals that they will carry with them for the rest of their school days.
The Illinois State Board of Education and Illinois Department of Public Health are mandating students and staff wear masks all day for in person instruction this fall.
