Students, teachers and staff of Corpus Christi School in Lansdale returned to school for the start of the fall semester Aug. 31 amid excitement as well as numerous health and safety protocols necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides health and wellness checks to start the day, classrooms accommodated 406 students in person — plus 22 students attending participating virtually from home — in rooms with a maximum of 25 persons each. Desks were spaced for social distancing as much as possible. In some classes, personal plastic screens were perched on desks to safeguard each student in the room. All teachers utilized large, portable, clear screens to speak with students, and virtual students participated through video equipment in each room. (Photos by Matthew Gambino)
