Just last week we were all ear hustling from our social distance about the invisible opponent that goes by the name COVID-19. Openly, we all wanted to know if we might get an extended spring break? After all, this is the toughest time of the school year for teachers. The only thing most of us in education could compare our wishes to was the longing for a coveted snow day.
Never in a million years would any of us have allowed the anticipatory smiles, snow dances and water jug conversations to go forward had we truly understood. Do we understand? The school year might be over.
