Parents Say Students Are "So Happy to be Back in the Classroom"

How are students adjusting to being back in the classroom for two or four days a week? According to the experts (parents), students are thriving. They love being with their teachers and friends, and they are seeing greater success in their learning.

In the fall, all students will return for five days a week of in-person instruction. Of course, there will be first-day-of-school jitters, but parents we talked with believe that students will adjust quickly and happily.
