ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Most students are still soaking up their summer break, but others are heading back to the classroom.
After a six week summer break, Longfellow Elementary resumes classes Thursday. Longfellow is the only school in the Rochester Public School District to follow a 45-15 schedule. That means students attend school for 45 days and then take a three week break. The students also get their six week summer break.
Students are wearing masks in the building. Principal Amy Adams says that while not mandatory for adults, many staff members will be wearing masks indoors as well. Students will be in pods again and will use social distancing when possible.
We hope all Longfellow Leopards have a great start to their new year of learning!
