Seriously. I’m pretty disappointed (although I, along with most teachers were expecting it). But, you should all now know that we won’t be going back to school until May 1st (at least).
However, I want to talk about this.
The reason we are staying away it to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. If we all do our part then we will be able to see each other before the end of the year (which is what I’m really hoping for. Online classes are… eh.) See, I’m happy to do these online classes if it means we are all healthy and safe. I care a lot about each of you and want you each to do your best to stay healthy.
So here is what we need to do. Stay inside. This will be hard, but, try to not hang out with friends or family, especially large groups. The states that are the lease effected by this are those that started social distancing early (which Utah did). Keep it up and try to find hobbies that can occupy your time, finish some books, or binge watch some shows (I started and finished Schitt’s Creek this week).
Anyway, try to find things that you can do at home. I’d love to see you all again before next school year.
I guess this is a great example of what I mean when I keep talking about being a good citizen. It’s looking past yourself (or your boredom, as the case may be) and doing things that will benefit others in significant ways. So, let’s all practice being good citizens.
I hope you’re all hanging in there. I miss you all, but am glad we have this opportunity to be safe and healthy and practice being good citizens.
