“I’m a high school senior at a private catholic school, and let me say that this new year has been a complete and utter mess. My school opened in-person with a virtual option, which I promptly took, but not even one week in we already had both a student and a staffer test positive. They’re barely adhering to the safety guidelines, and everyone is waiting to see how much longer they will last open. I just don’t understand why they didn’t go full virtual. It is clear they don’t care about the well-being of students, teachers, and their families.”
