Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) — Some students at Metro Nashville Public School will return to the classroom on Tuesday for the first time in almost a year.
Students from 5th to 9th grade will return to campus on Tuesday before 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade and will return to face-to-face learning next week.
Since March 2020, many of the students have not been in the classroom. Educators and parents have been waiting for this day.
Dr. Susan Kessler, principal of Hunter’s Lane High School, told News 2 that this was a monumental day for ninth graders who had never been to high school directly.
Dr. Kessler said it was like the first day of school.
“Instead of having 9th grade thrown into the HS experience and have to adapt quickly for this extra week, they actually take leadership next week when older students come back saying ah. We will be able to help you understand why we are doing this rather than doing it, “explains Dr. Kessler. Did.
She wants students to build relationships that are more difficult to build online at school.
“I thought you were tall, or the whole idea that we could rejoin as a school community, such as you thought you were short. Because it’s a very big part of adolescence. It’s not just what happens in the classroom, it happens everywhere else, “Dr. Kessler said.
Due to the winter weather last week, the Metro School has returned a gradual introduction of students to the school building for direct learning.
- Grades 6, 7, and 8 will return on Friday, February 26 (originally scheduled for Thursday, February 25).
- Grades 10, 11 and 12 will return on Wednesday, March 3, as originally planned.
