REDDING, Calif. - In just a couple of weeks, Shasta County students will be heading back to the classroom.

Shala Molgaard’s son will be a senior at Enterprise High School in the fall. Molgaard said she is worried about her son going back to school.

“I'm nervous,” said Molgaard. “I'm nervous if the Delta Variant is going to force them to close again. This up and down is really hard on the kids.”

The Shasta Union High School District plans to return in-person learning for a full five days a week. The district said it will be asking students to wear masks, consistent with state health guidelines.

“My senior this year really wants to go back to school,” said Molgaard. “He does not want to wear the mask but he's willing to do so to get back into school and finish off his high school career with fun like it was meant to be.”

The district said it doesn't plan to discipline students for not wearing a mask. But students who choose not to will not be allowed to attend class and instead, will be offered independent study.

Autumn Speed, an incoming junior at Foothill High School, is ready to get back to the classroom after a year of distance learning.

“That was my favorite thing about school was the hands-on learning in science and sometimes history,” said Speed. “Honestly just being with people.”

The Shasta Union High School District is encouraging staff and students to get vaccinated. The district also plans to offer programs like band, choir, and sports this year. But is still waiting on guidance.

The first weekend of autumn was pleasant for northern California, but our relatively tranquil weather will change soon. A Pacific storm is approaching the West Coast, and it will bring our area rain showers and gusty wind soon.
