On Friday, Aug. 7, all of the schools in the Dawson County Schools system officially returned to classes for the 2020-21 school year. Most of the students in the system returned to school in person amidst a slew of safety precautions, while a smaller percentage opted for the online learning option provided by the school. Here are some photos of the first day back to school:
