The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation (EVSC) is giving a glimpse at what some of its classrooms will now look like in order to keep students socially distanced as they return to class in August.

EVSC displayed the pictures of the socially distanced classrooms during Superintendent David Smith's live update, detailing all of the EVSC's August reopening plans.

Whenever social distancing in schools isn't possible, EVSC students and staff will be expected to wear masks. Students will also wear face masks while riding the bus.

EVSC students will now head back to class starting Aug 19 - after EVSC moved the first day of school back by two weeks.

The EVSC's reopening plan was created with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Indiana Department of Education, and the Vanderburgh County Health Department.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
