Centerville Schools said if students do not have access to internet, to contact their principal by email or phone for assistance.

Also, as students are cooped up at home and unable to visit with friends, a school counselor with Weller Elementary hosted a ‘virtual lunch’ with students Tuesday afternoon.

Nick Seuch was joined by 30 students on Google Meet, where they all got to catch up with friends.

The school system says this is just one way their staff is providing academic, social, and emotional support to their students during this time.
