With a drone buzzing overhead, about 60 members of the class of 2021 gathered around in a large circle on Lenzer Field to pose for a class photo.
The morning chill means 2021 white hoodies were the apparel choice for students no longer in Group A or B, but instead now able to attend school all four days.
Student reaction for the first week back was overall positive.
Senior Joey Skillen reflected on her first opportunity to attend live classes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with enthusiasm, while sitting in the collaboration center during MOD C/D, she said “it was awesome.”
The other seniors in the room, Abby Kline , Natalie Marmion, and Natalie Grillo, agreed, simply stating “it was fun.”
46 students chose to remain in the hybrid format, only attending live classes twice a week, or in the virtual format.
Regardless of choice, all students were invited to be in person during LEAD for the photographs around 8:30 AM before heading back to the school for MOD B.
