NEW MILFORD, Pa (WBNG) — With school back in session at the Blue Ridge School District, one 1st grade teacher is making sure her classroom is ready for her students. “We’re here for each other,” Orner said. “We’re going to do what we can to make the kids feel safe and successful.” Of the one thousand Blue Ridge students, 825 students will be doing hybrid learning. Students are split into two groups: A or B. Students will do remote learning the days they are not scheduled to come to campus. Orner says having class online three times a week is going to be the hardest transition for her students. Group A students will meet in-person Monday and Tuesday, and Group B students will meet in-person class Thursday and Friday. “Many of my students do not know how to log on to computers, so we’re going to be training them the first few weeks on how to get on Google Classroom,” Orner said. Susquehanna Community School also had its first day of school Monday. “I’m no longer reading about recess,” 1st Grade Teacher Robin Orner said. “I’m reading about how to social distance and how to wear your mask.” Superintendent Matthew Button says teachers will only be doing remote learning on Wednesdays. As someone who has kids enrolled in the district, Orner says she’s nervous about the school year but knows the district is one big family. “On Wednesday we will do a deeper cleaning on our communal areas,” Button said. “Cafeterias, lobbies, gymnasium, auditorium, things like that.” After 15 years of teaching, Orner has made a lot of changes to her classroom this year. Including changing classroom tables into desks.

P V Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth progressed to the second round.HS Prannoy also made a strong start to his campaign. 2015 winner Srikanth recorded his fourth successive win over Hong Kong’s Wong Wing Ki Vincent. New Delhi: Former champions P V Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth progressed to the second round, while HS Prannoy also made a strong start to his campaign with a hard-fought win at the Yonex-Sunrise India Open here Wednesday. Sindhu, who reached the finals in the last two editions and won the title in 2017, brushed aside fellow Indian Mugdha Agrey 21-8 21-13 in women’s singles, while a 2015 winner Srikanth recorded his fourth successive win over Hong Kong’s Wong Wing Ki Vincent with a 21-16 18-21 21-19 triumph in men’s singles.Prannoy also showed good signs of recovering from a gastro-oesophageal reflux disease that troubled him last year, notching up a come-from-behind 14-21 21-18 21-14 win over Thailand’s eighth-seeded Kantaphon Wangcharoen. Fifth seed Sameer Verma beat Denmark’s Rasmus Gemke 21-18 21-12, while Riya Mookerjee shocked Thailand’s Phittayaporn Chaiwan 21-17 21-15 to set up a meeting with Denmark’s eighth seed Mia Blichfeldt, who knocked out Rita Thaker.Sindhu said it was an easy first-round match for her. “It was comparatively easy for me. Now it is time to focus on next match. After All England I have worked on mental aspect as well physical,” second-seeded Sindhu said. Swiss Open finalist B Sai Praneeth recovered from a first-game reversal to outwit compatriot Kartikey Gulshan Kumar 22-24 21-13 21-8 to enter the second round. After opening the first game, third-seeded Srikanth erased an 11-17 deficit to make it 18-19 but couldn’t stop Vincent to bounce back into the contest. In the decider again, the Indian was lagging 1-7 before he equalised at 8-8 with the crowd rooting for him. Vincent again ran up a 17-11 lead with Srikanth committing simple errors but he recovered in time and grabbed two match points with a precise return and sealed it when the Hong Kong shuttler went wide.”I have played him 4-5 times after Asian Games. He played well in second and third game. I am happy I could pull it off. I made too many simple errors in the decider. We have to be ready for such a fast-paced game,” Srikanth said.Prannoy had missed a lot of tournaments last year due to the gastro-esophageal reflux disease. He would enter an event and find it difficult to breath properly in long matches but he seemed to have recovered well.”I have been consulting doctors in the United States,” said Prannoy after the match.”I can say it has helped me stand in the court right now. Probably 80% of the things have fallen in place. There are areas I have to focus on like the diet plan that has been given to me. I should be much better comparatively in the next 4-5 months.”Former champions Ratchanok Intanon and Li Xuerui made a good start to their respective campaigns. The fourth-seeded Intanon, who is eyeing a third title at this prestigious event, comfortably beat India’s Sai Uttejitha Rao Chukka 21-9, 21-6. London Olympic gold medallist Xuerui, the winner of this tournament in 2012, overcame a tough opponent in Nitchaon Jindapol with a 21-17, 21-11 scoreline.Third seed He Bingjiao needed 30 minutes to dismiss India’s Prashi Joshi 21-12, 21-15 and was joined by her compatriot Chen Xiaoxin following her 21-15, 21-11 victory over Yulia Yosephin Susanto. In doubles, sixth seeds Manu Attri and Sumeeth Reddy blew away younger countrymen Ravi and Lakshay Saroha 21-14, 21-7.

“It was so loud, I thought, ‘Is the president here?’” said Miki Barber, of USA Blue, who was warming up for her race at the time.By the time Bolt and his team took the track, the celebration had gone full- blown, with USA and Jamaican fans chanting for the respective countries, so much so that an announcement was made asking for quiet to start the race.When it began, Jamaica Gold and USA Blue remained close through the first three legs. Shawn Crawford later said his team struggled with bad handoffs, the Jamaicans played flawlessly, leading to Bolt’s impressive sprint.“If I’m in front of Usain Bolt, I don’t think he’s going to catch me, to be honest,” said Ivory Williams, who ran the final leg for USA Blue. “I ran a real good fourth leg, but I couldn’t pass him up (Bolt). I don’t care if it’s Usain Bolt or not, I’m trying to win. When they’re cheering for Usain Bolt, I feel like they’re cheering for me. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to pass him up, but I was trying. I think we really can beat these guys.”Bolt’s victory lap was met with a deafening roar, and he stopped twice to make a “lightning bolt” motion in front of screaming Jamaican fans. He also mingled before leaving the grounds, signing autographs and posing for pictures.“Over the past two years I’ve been surprised by the amount of people that know me and the welcome I get when I go to track meets or functions,” Bolt said. “I’m still trying to get used to it and I’m enjoying it.”Bolt’s popularity has also helped raise the profile of track and field for all competitors.“It excites and it motivates,” Crawford said. “The more excitement (Bolt) brings to track and field, we all get the attention because we’re on the same field. It motivates me because I want to be that guy winning. I want to get up there and showboat a little bit and be in the spotlight so I can talk a little mess.”Two Penn Relays records were set this year. Texas A&M’s quartet of Jeneba Tarmoh, Dominique Duncan, Jessica Beard and Porscha Lucas recorded a time of one minute, 29.42 seconds in the 800. That was also a NCAA record. Queen Quedith Harrison of Virginia Tech set a record in the women’s 100-meter hurdles, with a time of 12.61. THE PENN HILLS GIRLS 4 X 100 RELAY TEAM— From left: Paige Fields, Christina Roberson, Deshaun Squires and Iman Wilkerson, ran a 48.36 second race to make a good showing at the Penn Relays. PHILADELPHIA (AP)—They began filling up the streets around the University of Pennsylvania’s Franklin Field hours before, a sea of black, green and yellow.Thousands of Jamaican track and field fans had come to see their star, three-time gold medalist Usain Bolt, live up to his fitting last name, and dazzle in his return to Philadelphia. BILL COSBY gives some sprinting tips to middle school girls at the Penn Relays. Cosby was the starter for the grade school and middle school relay races. “I told the guys to make sure I didn’t have to work, because I really didn’t want to do much,” Bolt said with a laugh. “I got the baton pretty much in front, so I wasn’t really worried about anything else.”Bolt, 23, holds the world record in the 100- and 200-meter runs, and his appearance at the Penn Relays—his first competition of 2010—was responsible for the highest single-day attendance (54,310) in the event’s 116-year history. A total of 117,346 fans watched the three days, also a record.Despite losing to Jamaica Gold, USA Blue rebounded to win three of the event’s six events. Lisa Barber, Allyson Felix, Mikele Barber and Carmelita Jeter took the women’s 400 with a time of 42.74, and the men and women won their respective 1,600 relays.Bolt, an international, track & field sensation, was the biggest draw from the moment his participation was announced. The excitement began to swell from the moment he appeared on the field, about an hour before his race. IMPRESSIVE SPRINT—Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt smiles after crossing the finish line to win the 4×100 relay at the Penn Relays athletics meet, April 24, in Philadelphia. Bolt dazzled them all with a lightning fast final leg of the 400-meter relay, taking the baton in a near dead heat, then overtaking USA Blue’s Ivory Williams to win the event at the Penn Relays.A quartet of Mario Forsythe, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson and Bolt finished in 37.90 seconds for Jamaica Gold, setting a competition record. Bolt took a perfect handoff from Anderson and blazed for the final 100 meters to a raucous ovation.Bolt’s dash lasted an unofficial, but exhilarating 8.79 seconds.
