Stanley Switlik Elementary is welcoming students back

This fifth-grade classroom is set up on the diagonal to provide more spacing between desks. Oh, and a fantastic view of the bay. SARA MATTHIS/Keys Weekly

Last week, Kindergarten and first-grade students returned on Tuesday. On Wednesday, it was second and third grades. On Thursday and Friday, respectively, the fourth and fifth-grade students returned to Stanley Switlik Elementary in Marathon.

Part of the campus is brand new, and the rest is newly refurbished. The Keys Weekly recently toured the property after hours with principal Christine Paul and assistant principal Sarah Morton to get a sneak peek for our readers and students who return full time beginning Sept. 14.
