Students around the Tri-State will be returning to school in the coming days.
The Evansville School Corporation will begin classes on Monday. Masks will be required for all students and staff.
Last Thursday, schools in the Catholic Diocese of Evansville returned to class. The Diocese is not requiring students to wear mask.
Ingrid Lindy has three granddaughters who returned to school last Thursday. Although masks are optional, she says all of her granddaughters are choosing to wear masks to be safe.
"The girls have been wearing masks to school everyday and will continue to do so because we think that's one of the great ways to keep covid from expanding," she said.
Lindy went on to tell 44News that the community should continue looking out for one another.
"Don't be selfish for yourself; think about other people who might have some underlying illnesses. Be a good person."
