Parents react to Buena Vista schools reopening

The Traylor family is spreading the news.

â??We got (sic) school Monday,â?? says Myquil Traylor to a friend on the phone.

The eighth grader and his mother are thrilled he and his classmates are headed back to their classrooms after seven days of confusion.

â??Amen, thank god,â?? says Beatrice Tatum. â??They got their regular teachers back so thank you, thank you, thank you,â?? adds Tatum.

The state superintendent released state aid Wednesday. That allows the district to make payroll.

This comes after the school board approved a deficit elimination plan Tuesday night.

â??What I see is some lessons learned, some things we need to put in place for the future and some great teaching that we can have for our students,â?? says Dr. Deborah Hunter-Harvill, superintendent of Buena Vista Township schools.

The reopening of the district means students will finish the school year with their regular teachers, scraping plan b, which was a skills enhancement camp.

â??Very, very, very excited and happy to know he's back in school and his normal routine will go on,â?? says Tatum.

â??To know that families that had to do something different will be able to come back to their normal way of living in our community, that makes me happy,â?? says Harvill-Hunter.

It makes Myquil so happy, he can't wipe the grin off his face.
