Your News from Lancaster City Schools...
General Sherman students' first day back since March starts them at new building
Students' first day back to school at General Sherman Junior High School was also the first day in the new building, and their first day actually coming to school since March.

Gov. Mike DeWine ordered schools closed in March, when the COVID-19 pandemic was climbing. Schools transitioned to remote learning, with students and teachers working on lessons by computer.

Construction on the new building on Election House Road started in August 2018 and was completed on schedule, which Principal Charles Page said was good. Not just to have a better building, but one that can handle the needs of bringing students back to school during a global pandemic.
