Students in the Essex Westford School District returned to school today. The sun was shining, and though masked, smiles could be seen in students’ eyes.
Students are now attending school in-person five days a week, but some COVID-19 mitigation measures in place, like masking, social distancing, contact tracing and more.
At Essex High School, the class of 2025 walked the hallways for the first time. For the class of 2022, it was bittersweet — the last first day.
