FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Kids around the country are adjusting to a new style of classroom as they learn from home.

LEX 18 took a look at what exactly NTI is like for a Franklin County family.

Julie Muravchick is a mother of 3rd grader and 8th grader and is trying to give her daughters as much of a normal school experience as she can.

"So far, they are doing really well keeping up with the school year and really learning that responsibility, I'm trying to give them that responsibility and independence for them," Muravchick said.

Of course, there are a few perks for her girls.

"You get to stay at home, and you get to put blankets over your head, and you don't have to wear shoes and sometimes you get to wear your pajamas," says Julie's youngest daughter Emilee, a third-grader at Collins Lane Elementary School.

But overall, both of her daughters miss school. According to Bondurant Middle School eighth grader Makayla, there are lots of challenges from learning at home.

"When we are on zooms and google meets we don't really show our face that much because it helps the internet. But in school, they can see how we feel through our faces," she said.

Both girls are eager to get back to school but say they will miss breakfast in bed.
