PARADISE, Calif. - Students in the Paradise Unified School District are set to start classes Thursday - virtually.

A majority of students Action News Now spoke with say they are ready to learn from the computer.

Action News Now spoke with one student who attends Paradise Junior-Senior high school.

Samantha Cocleasure is currently a freshman at the school.

Cocleasure told Action News Now after the Camp Fire broke out - the majority of her learning was through the computer. She says that experience prepared her for learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

"After the fire, I did online learning it's not super hard but it is a lot different than going to campus. I think we're ready," Colcleasure said.

A Facebook post from the Paradise Unified School District mentions that students will have a total of six class periods.

Three periods one day, three the next. Attendance will be taken through those zoom meetings.

Cocleasure adds that "It kind of sucks just because it's my freshman year. It's my first year of high school. I'm not really going to know what's up when I come back to campus. Other than that it's fine I guess."

Action News Now also caught up with her brother Clayton, who is a 6th grader at Ridgeview Elementary School.

Clayton says "I don't get to see any of my friends so it's kind of weird."

The last day of school for Paradise Unified School District is June 3, 2021. It is not clear when in-person instructions for schools will return for the counties that are on the state's watch list.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
