We are grateful to everyone who shared their experiences and thoughts about coping with the COVID induced challenges as the school year wound down. Now, with the beginning of a new school year, it seems that the challenges will continue. Plans to keep children and teachers safe seem to need constant readjustment. Some districts that intended to open in person have already had to switch back to virtual schooling. Some districts are doing hybrid courses, giving parents and students the option of returning to a brick and mortar school or staying at home and attending virtual classes. We know this will continue to place great demands on your time, energy, and creativity. It would be wondrful, however, if you can fit in a moment or two to post something about your experiences. Good luck to everyone.
