EUGENE, Ore.-- Thousands of students across Western Oregon transitioned to in-person learning on Monday.

After more than a year of remote learning, students were able to sit at a desk and learn from their teachers in the classroom. Willamette High School in Eugene was just one of many campuses across the area to open their campuses back up. Some students told KEZI, it feels weird to be back to in-person learning but they're happy things are slowly getting back to normal.

School districts are also seeing a good amount of their students choose to do hybrid learning. The Bethel School district said their enrollment is at 70%, 4J said they're at 71%, and Springfield said they're at about 88%. Roseburg Public Schools said 97% of secondary students chose hybrid learning, starting February 1. Students who opted out, are continuing with remote learning.

Throughout April, even more students will head back to the classroom. 4J said middle and high school students will transition to hybrid learning on April 12. Springfield Public School said 8th grade will return next week and high school will start April 19.
