Students in the Florida Panhandle county hardest hit by Hurricane Michael have dealt with power outages, sporadic Internet, larger classes and schools sharing buildings since they’ve returned to school.
Students at heavily damaged schools in Bay County have moved into less damaged schools in arrangements that have one school holding classes in the morning and the other school holding classes in the afternoon.
Teachers have struggled with how much homework to give their students when they didn’t have internet at home.
JoBeth Davis, a special education teacher at Deer Point Elementary School in Panama City, says some of the younger children were spooked by a power outage before Thanksgiving, thinking that another storm was coming.
