D211 Post: Students Return for Summer School

            Students across District 211 returned for the first of two three-week summer school sessions June 8.  More than 6,200 students registered for courses which is only a slight decline from pre-COVID numbers.

            For students, the summer courses provide a closer sense of student-life before the pandemic.

            “It’s good to see everyone again,” said Hoffman Estates High School senior Caden Nakai.  “I missed a lot over the past year.  It was tough not having the usual activities.”

            For some students this summer will provide them a first look into their school which they missed during the previous school year.

            “This feels a bit weird and nerve racking, but I am very excited” said James B. Conant High School freshman Magdalena Zalesinski, who only did a portion of in-person learning during the 2020-2021 school year. 

            Teachers and staff are just as excited to have students back in the schools.

            “It feels great to have the buildings filled with students again.  This is what we are here for,” said Hoffman Estates High School Assistant Principal Tom Mocon.  “I hope this is a really good first step to getting us ready for the fall when we get more students back.”
