School during a pandemic
We have two weeks of school behind us and to say the least, it has been interesting and quite different from years past. Seeing students exit the buses wearing masks is definitely something you do not see or want to see every year. I would like to commend all of the students and staff for making the beginning of school as positive as it could be under the circumstances. With very few exceptions, the students have complied with the mask directive and have done a good job with social distancing. I was pleasantly surprised at their obedience to the rules and I know it is because of our great parents. You have done an excellent job teaching your kids about the guidelines and the importance of following them even if we do not personally agree with them. The students have tried very hard to social distance from each other and I know that has been very difficult because that is so unnatural for kids. The teachers have been troopers when it comes to learning a whole new teaching platform and implementing classroom guidelines. They have performed each task with charm and grace even though I know there have been times they wanted to lose their patience with the technological component. I am so proud of all the employees for pitching in and doing anything that was needed to help with the new adjustment. My heart swelled with Bobcat Pride as I watched almost every person go the extra mile to make school as normal as possible for our students. Even in these difficult circumstances, it’s always a great day to be a Bobcat!
