Students were welcomed with open arms on the first day of classes Monday, Aug. 24, at Needville Elementary School.
Teachers were on hand to help students get out of cars as parents dropped off their youngsters to start the 2020-21 school year. The week was cut short, however, as classes were canceled Wednesday through Friday out of an abundance of caution with the arrival of Hurricane Laura on the Gulf Coast. While the region was spared the storm as it moved east toward Louisiana, students still managed to get a taste of what the school year will be like.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic that interrupted the end of the last school year, students, teachers and paraprofessionals all donned face masks or shields and made sure to keep their hands clean.
