Students document return to school

Coronavirus in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (WJC) — While high school students in Wichita Public Schools started school remotely, students from other high schools in the area were back in the buildings. Some are in person every day, while others started in a hybrid model, with only half the students are in the building each day.

Masks, social distancing and temperature checks mean school looks remarkably different, so the Wichita Journalism Collaborative teamed up with high school journalism programs at Andover High School, Derby High School, Maize High School and Maize South High School to help show and document the reopening of high schools during the week of Sept. 7, 2020 after nearly six months of closed doors.
