It's the first week back at school for many kids and their families.

We checked back in Rose Levine, a fifth grade teacher at the Graham and Parks School in Cambridge. We first heard from Rose last month when she broke down why she was against in-person learning this fall.

Then, we know school will look different this fall for all students — and that includes sports. Statewide, there will be no full contact high school sports, like football and cheerleading. For many kids, playing sports keeps them motivated in school and gives them something to look forward to during the day.

We heard again from Avery Esdaile, athletic director for Boston Public Schools, about the elimination of these sports this season. We also heard from Enrique Schiappacasse, a senior football player in Boston Public Schools. He said he misses football, but is keeping a positive attitude and looking towards his future.
