Thousands of Bay County students return to class

BAY COUNTY, Fla. – After a month long hiatus, thousands of Bay County students are back in class following Hurricane Michael. On Monday more than 15 schools reopened, some sharing a campus, and others on split schedule. At Parker Elementary, where only about 50 percent of the students returned, the principal and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum greeted them. Oakland Terrace also was short some students. The district anticipates more accurate attendance numbers in a couple days.
