Beginning this month, almost 5,000 New Bedford students returned to their classrooms.

The move is part of the school district's hybrid plan to slowly bring students back to school during the coronavirus pandemic, while thousands more remain at home learning remotely.

Superintendent Thomas Anderson is overseeing the return, while closely watching the rates of infection in New Bedford and school districts around the state.

During an interview this week on Townsquare Sunday, Anderson discusses the progress being made, the protective equipment being used in schools, and how remote learning is working in New Bedford. The superintendent's interview can be heard here:
