Stateline, Ill. (WIFR) -Rockford, Freeport and Belvidere School Districts all welcomed their students and staff back to class today.

Rockford and Freeport students who attended in-person learning before the Thanksgiving Break went back to the classroom Monday morning. Those students who opted to learn virtually will continue class online.

The Belvidere School District gave parents the choice to send kids back in-person or online which will begin after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday according to District 100 Superintendent Daniel Woestman.

“It felt like the first day of school in September except for the snow,” said Freeport Superintendent Anna Alvarado.

RPS 205 parent, Jenni Listerund said in a statement in part, “My daughter loves going to school, and I think she does best in the classroom with her teachers and classmates. Today when she went back she was very excited.”

RPS 205 parent Hope Dworschak-Bigelow chose remote learning for her kids. A decision she says has been tough.

“I’m sitting right next to my seventh grader all day long, every single day because he wouldn’t be able to do all of it at once,” said Dworschak-Bigelow.
