School is back in session for students at St. Cecilia, but this year will look a lot different with various COVID-19 mitigation measures in place.

For instance, children in lower grades will have dividers between them. They will be separated into groups of four, and they will only play and each lunch with those four children everyday.

One class per week will use the school's cafeteria, while the other students will eat in their classrooms. Mass will be conducted via live stream, with some students watching from classrooms or other parts of the school, while junior high students will be in the church. Students were met Thursday morning with temperature checks.

Despite the changes, many are excited to be returning to campus.

"I was extremely excited to see the kids on campus, because in March it was so abrupt. We got shut down. I was in the classroom at that point in time, so I didn't really get to say goodbye to any of my students. This was a happy moment for me," explained principal Kyle Bourque.
