Incline High School had a similar bumpy start to the 2021/22 school year but is now on track to go full speed ahead. Its students had their first day back to school this past August 27, but it ended up being a bit of a lackluster start.
“It was on a Friday, the weirdest day to go back,” says IHS Principal Tierney Cahill. “We had a high energy motivator coming into to pump up the kids and we prepared for this wild, positive day and then it just didn’t happen,” she explains. The following week, IHS resumed school for two days but even then, it was kind of torturous.
