After being away from school for months due to the pandemic and summer break, students from the Levittown Public Schools received a warm welcome back on Sept. 8. Although school will look different this year, students were still excited to return to their buildings to see their peers, meet their new teachers and fall into their new routines.
With smiles behind their masks, students and staff entered their respective schools and had their temperatures checked. This is one of the many safety precautions that the district is taking this school year to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enters the buildings. Among other safety measures, students and staff will follow guidelines such a proper social distancing, along with hand-washing and hand sanitizing.
This year, students had the option of following a fully remote instructional model or return to school in some capacity. Primary students could return to in-person learning five days a week, while secondary students had the option of selecting a hybrid model, following a schedule that alternates between virtual and in-person instructional days.?
"We are thrilled to welcome our students back and reconnect with them both in-person and virtually," said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tonie McDonald. "Although school may look different this year, the Levittown Public Schools will continue to provide students with a safe learning environment and opportunities that will lead to Success for Every Student."
