Students celebrate first day of classes
As teachers, staff and administrators helped students navigate the first day of school Aug. 30, Oberlin City Schools Superintendent David Hall took a moment to take it all in.
“In some ways, it feels like the first day of school for me, too,” Hall said. “Some of our students have been learning remotely since March 2020.
“We are so excited to have them back in our buildings where they will continue to learn and thrive. And the new elementary school, to see the children smiling under their masks — because you can — you can see it — they are so happy to be learning with their friends once again.”
An open ceremony celebration of the new Oberlin Elementary School is at 1 p.m., Sept. 12, at 210 N. Park, in Oberlin.
All are welcome to attend as social distancing and masks will be mandated.
“It’s our chance to show the community-at-large all of the hard work, dedication and detail that went into the new school,” Hall said.
