Tri-State K-12 Students Return to School This Week

Many schools around the Tri-State are to begin classes in the coming days.

Posted: Aug 8, 2021 8:23 PM

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."

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
