Schools in the Panhandle are reopening, three weeks after Hurricane Michael slammed into the region. It’s a return to normal- of sorts- for students.

From the education desk this week, WFSU’s Ryan Dailey tells 90.7’s Matthew Peddie most of the Big Bend school districts are open again. And in Bay County, home to Panama City and Mexico Beach, where the storm caused catastrophic damage, schools are set to reopen beginning November 5th.
