Opp City School students return to on-campus instruction

Local News

Opp, Ala. (WDHN)—This week, brick-and-mortar classroom instruction resumed for the approximate 13-hundred students in the Opp City School District.

Superintendent Michael Smithart decided to hold only virtual classes.

Before Christmas, the district experienced a few student COVID-19 cases which resulted in more than a hundred students being quarantined due to social tracing.

The majority of cases were in middle school.

By keeping students out of the buildings for an extra week, it looks like the health situation improved.

When on-campus learning began yesterday, Superintendent Smithart says he and the staff were pleasantly surprised with the low number of absences in the district.
