The first week of having students back in classrooms in the La Crosse School District has been ‘awesome,’ according to Superintendent Aaron Engel.
Engel tells the school board about visiting different buildings in the district, to see kids in school again after several months of remote learning, saying he saw “a lot of energy, a lot of excitement, also a little nervousness.”
“I’ve been incredibly impressed with the safety protocols, with our kids, with our teachers,” said Engel. Students wear masks in class, while teachers wear face shields, and ventilation in the rooms has been improved.
