The transition back to traditional learning; how B.B. Comer High School handled the first full week back in the classroom

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – It’s been a full year since B.B. Comer High school has been together as one in the classroom.

On March 15, 2020, Talladega County Schools decided to go back to five day a week in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year.

With the first full week being the week before spring break, a lot of student were excited to see all of their friends and having everyone back in the classroom.

“At times it was difficult to get back into the swing of things, but overall it felt normal, ” said senior, Emma Steverson. “Seeing all of her friend she has not seen in so long is a great relief that things are finally getting back to normal.”

COVID-19 drastically changed the way most students received their instruction. The first full week of normalcy, was a busy one for most teachers and students, as they shifted back to traditional learning.

“It was definitely a busy week for me, but the joy I felt hearing all the laughter and voice in the hallway made it worth it,” said B. B. Comer High School Counselor, Allison Motes.

The number of students in each class nearly doubled since the beginning of the school year.

“Everyone generally wears their mask and keeps a good distance,” said Steverson.

While wearing a mask will be a personal option after April 9, the faculty and staff at B.B. Comer are committed to following CDC guidelines to ensure students safety in the classroom.
