Spartanburg school districts go back to class


SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA)- It’s the first day of school for Spartanburg school districts. Staff said they were excited to welcome students back to in-person learning after several months of virtual instruction.

7 News stopped by Lyman Elementary to visit new Principal Allison Hepfner. She said there is a focus on team building and community this year, with programs to promote differences among the students and how they can be stronger when they work together.

Hepfner said some staff and students will dress up to resemble their favorite children’s book characters. District 5 leaders also said the school, as well as the district, is growing. They are adding 130 more staff members.
