DULUTH, MN -- Going back to school is difficult, especially during a pandemic.

Denfeld High, Myers-Wilkins, and Lincoln Park Middle invited students to a welcome back event Tuesday afternoon.

Angel Peluso, director of the Duluth Community School Collaborative, noticed families' concerns about the school year.

"Right now there's just so many challenges and every kid is different in what their needs are every family is different," Peluso said.

Students are apprehensive about the upcoming school year.

Brennen Evanson, a senior at Denfeld High, said there is uncertainty both in the classroom and at home.

"I'm doing the hybrid, like most kids are at Denfeld, so me and my folks are just going to see how that works out," Evanson said.

Despite that uncertainty, school officials want to show students they are here to support them and their families.

"When families are involved in their kid's education, that means that they're going to do better, and that means opening doors inside the school where voices can be heard," Peluso said.
