School is back in session for the 2021-22 school year in Cherokee County, and classes at Cherokee are already in full swing. Warriors were welcomed back to Cherokee on Monday, August 2.
The beginning of the year is the time for settling into a routine of new teachers, new classes, and new people. Like every year, schedule changes have already been tumultuous in the first two weeks, as students adjust to find classes in which they are comfortable.
There is a new change this year for the breaks between classes—the addition of a warning bell. The warning bell alerts students five minutes into the seven-minute gap, in exchange for the removal of cross-campus release.
The school has also increased the number of students in-person, as many students who were digital for the 2020-21 school year came back.
I’m excited to be back, hopefully the Covid cases will stay down, and we won’t need to start quarantining again.Samantha Dodd, junior
Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, safety precautions are ongoing at Cherokee, including regular cleaning and sanitizing, sick quarantines, and encouragement to wear face masks. Digital school is also an option once again.
This year will be unlike any others. Already Cherokee has a wide itinerary of clubs and sports lined up for students of all interests. Have a great year, Cherokee!
