The second semester has started at both the Pine Bluff and Dollarway School Districts, which will become one on July 1, and Barbara Warren, who serves as superintendent of both districts said Friday that so far, the districts are doing the same things now they did in the first semester.
Warren appeared on the Oldies 101.3 morning show with Greg Horne and Will Jenkins.
She said some students who chose to attend classes virtually during the first semester have come back for face to face instruction, indicating, she said, “they feel safe in the schools.”
She was also asked how teachers were holding up, trying to teach during a pandemic.
Warren said that even though the Dollarway district will cease to exist July 1, some Dollarway traditions, including athletics will continue for at least one more year and it makes sense to have some schools on the north side of Pine Bluff, especially since the current Dollarway District comprises 400 square miles
“There’s no rush to make those type of decisions,” she said.
Warren was also asked about the process of bringing the two districts together.
