The beginning of the year started off completely different than years prior. For starters, the doors of the new commons did not open until 7:30, and we were required to wear masks. Before anyone could enter the building there were staff members waiting to take our temperature and decide whether it was safe for us to enter the school or not.
All of the students that are currently enrolled in the David City Public School system are keeping their best efforts to stay socially distanced, wearing masks when they’re unable to stay six feet apart. The teachers are making sure to keep almost all seats facing the same direction unless spaced out accordingly.
