School has started and things are going very well for in school and distance learners.
Our classrooms are outfitted with plexi-glass partitions. Students wear face guards and masks. Temperature checks are easily done in the hallways at any time with a quick scan. We are sanitizing like crazy. Movement in the halls is very limited. No large groups.
On-line learners must join the class at the same time and can be observed by the teacher on a screen in the back of the room. They must show up on time and wear the school uniform because... it's school.
We are thankful we can offer options to our families and the technology is working.
Our teachers teach their students in class and at the same time (using a mic and a camera) teach students at home. Pretty cool.
