Back to class for students in Tri-Counties

It’s back to school time.

The Regional Director of Education for the Tri-Counties says they’ve had a busy summer preparing, and now they’re ready for another year.

Jared Purdy reminds drivers to be safe on the roads, especially around bus stops.

“We need people to watch out for the red lights, and to make sure everyone is cautious and patient, especially in the first couple of weeks as younger students get used to the routine,” said Purdy.

The return of school comes with an increased risk of catching the flu or getting a cold.

Purdy reminds families to keep children home if they’re sick.

“We’re asking people to do the basics, like washing hands and watching out for symptoms and keeping germs as mitigated as possible.”

He said attendance was strong last year, the first normal school year post COVID-19.

Purdy says they’ve had success in student achievements and well-being over the last 12 months, with all data pointing to improvements in these areas.

He says he’s toured a few schools, and they’re shiny and ready to go.

Students return to class on Wednesday, September 6th.
