one school has gone online for the rest of the semester and sent kids home.
the other school, which seems to be operating in drips and drabs of info, has committed to everyone sheltering in place and us being online until the 25th. which, i imagine, is a deadline to which we will not adhere.
it doesn't feel like that many kids until you realize there are 50 people you are holding in your heart, 50 people you're ambiently caring for, 19 of whom you now know you will not see in the classroom again.
i sent out a form to assess their needs. the form asked if there's anything they think i should keep in mind while planning the next few weeks.
this was one reply: Nothing really comes to mind, I just hope it’s not to stressful for you !!
