For the first time since mid-December, Clinton Central School students attended classes in their buildings. On Monday and Thursdays, students in the two cohort groups were welcomed back to school with first-day-of-school vibes. Songs “Celebration” by Kool & The Gang and “Happy” by Pharrell Williams filled the halls over the loudspeakers as students with last names starting with M through Z settled in their classrooms. In preparation for in-person classes, the school added social-distancing signs in the hallways, and some desks are equipped with clear-plastic shields. Signs showed students how to greet their classmates while socially distancing.
