Local News

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Enterprise schools reopened today for students to return to the classroom but things looked a lot different when compared to the past first days.

None the less, parents were still excited for their kids and to see how it would go.

“I’m excited to see how everything is going to go and how they’re going to report back, give us feedback.” Parent Cassie Far said. “Whether they like it or it’s crazy for them.”

Pinedale Elementary School made sure to take extra precautions by having separate drop off, pick up, and lunchtimes for different groups of students.

“Well normalcy is going to be a new term, and it’s going to change into something different.” Principal Trey Mims said. “But we’re going to work hard to follow guidelines and make sure that we’re protecting our kids and doing what’s best for them.”

Even with the option for online learning, many students and parents still chose to go back to in-class learning, which made teachers and staff extremely happy.

“We were very excited, very high energy.” Mims said. “It’s been a long break, and people have been kind of chomping at the bits to get in and get into our calling and so the energy was high, and I was extremely pleased with it this morning.”

With time and practice, teachers, parents, and students hope to adjust to the new normal quickly.
