With all the back-to-school social media photos on Thursday, it is safe to say Guthrie Public Schools welcomed back students for a new school year, including the Class of 2023.
Superintendent Dr. Mike Simpson, who is beginning his 11th year in the district, says the start of the school year has a “normal” feel to it.
The High School had a planned late start to accommodate the Senior drive.
Simpson and district administrators toured each building this morning visiting with students and staff.
“This morning had more of a normal feel to it than we have had over the past two years. The students and staff I visited with all seemed to be truly excited about us being back together,” Simpson said in a release.
He continued, “The past two years we seemed to have more anxiety about the unknown than I felt today. We know much work remains to continue playing catch up for lost learning due to the pandemic, but everyone is obviously eager to continue the journey.”
