WPTV is committed to getting you and your family ready for back to school.

Today on 5 anchors Ashleigh Walters and Mike Trim will look at how schools are preparing to welcome back students and stay within the CDC guidelines.


Our team of reporters will also dig deep into what happens if a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19. What are the protocols? Will the public be informed? And how will districts handle contact tracing?

We are not only looking into safety, but also exploring options for parents who will have students learning virtually and ways you can save on back-to-school shopping.

WPTV NewsChannel 5 anchor Michael Williams also spoke with most of our area school superintendents, who explain how the pandemic has changed the way they lead their districts.
