Students coming to York Comprehensive High School Monday morning will be wearing masks on the school bus before they even get to school and will keep them on in school.

Channel 9 was there Friday and saw workers putting up signs in the hallways showing students how they can social distance when they’re at school.

They will be eating lunch in their classrooms instead of the cafeteria and they can’t gather in groups. The water fountains are all shut down as well.

Of the 5,200 students in the York School District, more than 1,400 chose to learn virtually at home. Even so, only a quarter of the students at the high school will be there on Monday as they ease into the A-B Day Schedule.

Clover Schools and Chesterfield Schools are also back Monday for the first time since March.

Both are doing a hybrid system. In Chesterfield, more than 40 percent of students will stay home to learn, which is more than 3,000 students.
