It’s difficult to try to put things into perspective with all that has happened with the pandemic. I remember back to March 12th, our last day with students at school, heading for a four day weekend. There was no indication that we were headed for what has transpired since that point. As far as we knew, COVID-19 was something in the news, but nothing that we needed to be overly concerned about.
Over the next several days, that certainly changed, and very quickly. We received word that school would not be back in session the following week and that learning packets must be prepared to send home to students. That all seems so long ago. The learning packets were sent out and many have been returned. Teachers have been using online tools to further learning and those students who are able and willing to take advantage of it, additional learning has been realized.
