School hiatus is over
After more than five months’ absence, the students, teachers, and administrators at Bridgeport Public Schools came back to their new classrooms on Monday, August 24, for their first day of face-toface instruction since March 12. At that time, they were let out after a half a day to begin Spring Break and, due to the coronavirus scare and the ever-changing directed health measures, never came back to finish out the school year.
On Tuesday, August 18, nervous twelve-year-olds sat in the auditorium with their parents for seventh grade orientation. With several feet between each family, kids studied their schedules and listened to secondary principal Chris Lecher give a heartfelt welcome, followed by instructions for the year to come. After introduction of their teachers, Lecher led the giddy students on a 15-minute tour of their locker area and classrooms, helping familiarize them with their new surroundings. The kids were excited to gather after an extended summer break, sharing their class assignments with one another and checking out the different classrooms together.
