At River Ridge Elementary, this is the first day of what
teachers and administrators hope will be a full week back at school. That
hasn't happened since winter break.
"This is the first year I've ever experienced over ten
snow days. I feel like every night you go to bed not knowing if you'll be at
school the next day or not," says second grade teacher Tory
This has made it interesting to teach elementary students,
who often thrive on routine. But Tory says she's making it all work.
"With education, you have to be flexible and you
have to be ready to adjust you lessons and move them around as need be,"
In every classroom at River Ridge, that's the mantra right
"Now more than ever, making every minute count.
That's something I stress to our staff and students. Now more than ever, making
ever minute of the day count," said principal Shawna Harney.
Staffers at River Ridge say they are hoping the interruption in instruction will not affect learning and test scores for students.
