EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Thursday was the first day of classes for all students in EVSC schools.

Superintendent Dr. David Smith says it all went very smoothly and school officials also announced changes in protocols per CDC guidelines.

The first involves screening your child before school body aches or runny, stuffy noses are no longer symptoms to stay home.

Also, a change to rules regarding close contact with an infected person: within six feet for 15 minutes still applies – but the time can be cumulative throughout the day.

Thursday’s full EVSC update can be viewed below.
