ST. LOUIS — For many first graders across the region, Monday was their first day in a classroom after spending the last year learning virtually.
That meant lots of extra time practicing lining up, raising their hands and finding the right bathroom.
“I love this school!” Travis Shelton, 6, said to his teacher, Karin Versen, at Patrick Henry Elementary School just north of downtown St. Louis.
“I love this school too!” Versen said. “I’ve been here for eight years.”
“I’ve been here for 20 minutes!” Travis said.
