CHICO, Calif. - Chico Unified students returned to campus Monday for in-person learning and it was bittersweet for some freshman embarking on this new milestone under these historic circumstances. 

One freshman student at Chico High said although this is not what she had in mind for her high school experience, she is just happy to be back on campus.

“I am excited that I am back on campus and although it is not what I expected, it is definitely better than nothing,” said freshman student, Olivia Teague. 

Teague said the best part of starting high school, is the escape from the challenges of virtual learning.

“There was just a lot of work and it was just very hard to manage my time because I had Zoom classes in the morning and all this homework in the afternoon and it was chaotic," shared Teague. "I know some of the teachers struggled trying to figure out the online program and it was just difficult with that.”

She adds that high school was intimidating enough before the pandemic and now she has to adapt to even more changes.

“I mean, I am a little nervous," said Teague. "It is kind of weird having a different schedule every day and trying to figure out what my teachers want because there are all these new sets of standards for the classrooms.”

In the end, she just hopes everything will soon return back to normal.

“Everyone is hoping for that at this point because right now, we are just hoping that eventually, we can get back to normal so that we can have our homecoming and our Almond Bowl.”

Teague said that though she is fearful of the possibility they could have to go back to all virtual classes, she remains hopeful that this won’t end up happening.
