PARADISE, Calif. - Students in Paradise are finally back in school for the first time in 7 months, but the high fire danger could impact their first week back.
Paradise Unified parent, Jessica Schaulis told Action News Now, "It makes it hard for the kids to learn when they keep getting interrupted. You have to worry about how you can make sure your kids are getting the adequate education they need and without power it makes it really difficult."
Paradise Ridge Principal, Ed Gregorio says, "It's been wonderful having students back on campus and we appreciate bringing a sense of normalcy, it's unfortunate we might not have school on Thursday and Friday but just like everyone else we will make the best of it and provide the best possible education for those two days."
Gregorio tells Action News Now that even though its been a rough year they are making the best of it.
"It's been amazing start to hybrid model we owe it to our families and their resiliency and the amazing staff here at Paradise Ridge, our slogan is 'We will soar' and we are definitely soaring now."
He says if the school closes because of the shut offs they will hand out learning packets for students to use at home.
Elementary schools in Paradise resumed classes on Monday. Paradise High School will be back on Monday.
