With thousands of students all together in Middletown’s 10 school buildings for the first time in the 2020-2021 school year, district officials said operations went smoothly including no busing transportation issues. “Teachers and students alike were overjoyed to see one another together,” said Middletown Schools’ Spokeswoman Elizabeth Beadle.
“The overall mood of the buildings is hopeful – hopeful that things start to feel ‘normal’ again and we can continue to strengthen our relationships with one another. We’re all looking forward to a positive fourth quarter,” she said.
Middletown Schools made headlines in August by being one of the few districts in the region to start the school year with all, remote learning from home for all students as a precaution against spreading the coronavirus.
