First Graders' First Impressions of the First Week of School

Annie Clapper / Yonnie Lucas
Annie Clapper and her daughter Hazel and Yonnie Lucas and her son Jake talk to us about the first week of virtual and in-person school.

We speak with a couple of local first graders and their parents (mostly their parents) about their first impressions of their first week of school during the COVID-19 pandemic. Jake is a first grader at Greenland Elementary School and is attending classes in person. Meanwhile, Hazel is a first grader who is learning virtually at Apple Glen Elementary in Bentonville.
