Focus on Learning

Yesterday our school announced that we were postponing the start of the new year by a week.  Beyond that, the first two weeks have been set aside for online instruction.  From there, we will work towards bringing half of the student body on-campus at a time in two-day sets.  Big news, for sure.  So now we are in (re)planning mode.  A good chunk of meetings each day.

That means it’s more of a comic strip week here.
