HANNIBAL | Hannibal Public Schools announced Aug. 24 that the start of school would be delayed until Sept. 8, but several local, private schools welcomed students back to in-person classes this past week after transitioning to online classes last spring.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, educators considered alternates to face-to- face learning including online classes or a hybrid model. For Holy Family Catholic School and St. John's Lutheran School in Hannibal, it was important to return to the classroom.


Northeast Missouri area schools are reopening, and Hannibal Courier-Post speaks with school representatives and parents to hear how young students are adapting to the new conditions and experiences.
