Haw Creek Elementary School welcomed back fourth- and fifth-graders to Plan A in-person learning this week.

On Tuesday morning, Ms. Lindsey Klein’s fifth-graders split into small groups to work on math problems. She walked around the classroom, encouraging each group to give it their best.

“The students are really excited to be back and see some classmates they haven’t seen in person all year,” she said. “I’m really big on community, and this helps us really feel like one, united classroom. It’s also easier to match students with the best peers to collaborate and learn together.”

Fourth-grade teacher Karen Davis also spent this week reintroducing students to each other. In spite of the long year, she said, her students are engaged and energetic. They’re also mature enough to realize that school is a blessing.

“I think my students have learned not to take it for granted that they get to go to school and see each other every day,” she said. “They’re ready and happy to be here.”

As decided by the Buncombe County Board of Education on February 25, 2021, students in grades K-3 returned to schools under Plan A on March 8, and grades 4-5 returned on March 15. As decided by the board on March 17, 2021, intermediate schools will return on March 22. Middle and high school students will return on March 29.
