So this is going to be good" a few weeks ago-- schools boards with owensboro and daviess county public schools met to vote on the proposed plan-- to get students learning in person--full time.

Now that the day is here-- schools like meadow lands elementary-- celebrated like it was the first day-- all over again "it's a big celebration.
