N3 asking for input on school changes.
OK, so week one of this most unusual school year is in the books.
How are we doing Newaygo County?
With somewhere near a third of our students doing remote learning, those in school required to don masks throughout the day, teachers facing the inherent instructional challenges, school staff from transportation to administration to food service to everyone else throughout the building balancing new procedures school life is in a truly transitional phase.
Then there are parents.
Nothing adds to the stress of any family like tossing a curve into what had been a somewhat structured routine and while back to school always involves some adjustments to daily life the current situation simple tosses a bit of gas on the fire
From what we are hearing, things are inching along as they should with the usual tweaking necessary when nearly everything is new. Many situations have likely not been figured out yet but again, this is uncharted territory and we have capable, creative people who will be guiding the process.
Now we want to hear from you.
How is it going? What are you learning? Biggest challenges? What has changed? Likes? Dislikes? Thoughts? Ideas? Philosophical insights?
Send us a few paragraphs, a few sentences or, if you’re pressed for time, a few words.
Let us know what this has been like for you as a student, parent, teacher, et. al.
Our hope is to create a bit of an ongoing community dialogue so we welcome your input.
Look for responses to be posted in our Pulse page.
