NYSSA – Kindergarteners showed up for face-to-face teaching in school Monday, just days after coronavirus cases were reported among Nyssa school employees and students.

Darren Johnson, Nyssa School District superintendent, said by email Monday that the district expected 80 of the possible 88 kindergarteners to attend, working with five teachers.

And he said more students would be showing up for classroom teaching at Nyssa Middle School and Nyssa High School, capping at 100 students.

State officials last week disclosed Covid cases tied to all three Nyssa schools and at Four Rivers Community School in Ontario.
