As area school kids get back into the routine of the school day with a different feel this year, one Piatt County District is celebrating the return to class with very limited issues.
Dr. Sheila Greenwood is the Superintendent of Bement Schools and tells Regional Radio News, they have had very few issues with COVID in their buildings so far and adds there have been very few issues with the things their kids are being asked to do this year due to the pandemic.
Many doubted if schools make it beyond just a few weeks before COVID would shut things down but Dr. Greenwood says kids are showing resiliency and there are positive vibes all over the place as everyone is glad to be back to class.
Dr. Greenwood is making it her goal for their district to be a success story on returning to school safely during the pandemic. She says everyone is working hard to make it through the school year with zero interruptions.
