Elementary students returned to the classroom Wednesday at St. Mary of the Assumption School in Santa Maria.
Each desk has a cubicle-style shield to protect the students.
All kids are required to wear masks.
After recess, each student must sanitize their hands before entering the classroom
Some students said they were happy to be back in the classroom instead of having virtual classes at home.
"Zoom is more complicated. Sometimes you have to virtually raise your hand, but in person you get to have more interaction with people,” said sixth grader Jaela Dillon.
