HANCOCK COUNTY — Hundreds of local high school students will feel like they’re at a high school reunion on Monday, when classes at Mt. Vernon and Greenfield-Central high schools return to full capacity for the first time in months.
For most of the school year, the county’s two largest high schools have been operating on a hybrid format, with students learning both at home and part time in the school buildings. G-C will still have a built-in e-learning day on Wednesdays, but the school will be fully open otherwise. MV students will be back in class full time.
New Palestine and Eastern Hancock high schools already returned to full-time in-school studies.
Alli Bowman, a senior at Greenfield-Central High School, can’t wait to see her friends in the halls on Monday morning.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Alli, 17, who will attend the University of Indianapolis this fall.
She’s hoping all goes smoothly so she can enjoy some sense of normalcy in the last weeks of her senior year, in a year that’s been anything but normal.
Fun traditions like graduation, prom and Senior Nights have all been upended or adjusted in one way or another at all
