Day 7 Slice of Life – Break Time

This morning a handful of our staff went out for breakfast. We’ve been staying indoors mostly. Most of our events are being cancelled–a Lauryn Hill concert, wedding receptions, church services and more,  because of the Coronavirus. Today we ventured out, a small group, armed with sanitizer bottles and appreciation for face-to-face conversation, after a long ten days of Zoom meetings, phone calls, emails, and What’s App messages. More messages, I’m sure, were sent in the last ten days than in the whole past year combined. Teachers and administration will go back to a disinfected school tomorrow to continue our Virtual Learning Initiative with the children who are still required to stay home.

We felt festive while together for breakfast this morning.

  1. Wow! Our school hasn’t resorted to e-learning, yet, but we are getting prepared.

    1. It is good to be prepared. Our first week was tough. If it happens for you, my suggestion is start out slowly. Simple, familiar lessons that 100% of the students can succeed at. I started out trying to make the lessons too creative, with a strict rubric.

  2. I’m glad you all ventured out. Human connection and face-to-face conversation are being lost in our age of social media, and now Coronavirus. I hope the food was as delicious as I’m sure the conversation was.

    1. The food was delicious, Donnetta, and sadly the restaurant almost empty on a Saturday morning. My fear is some people will lose their jobs this season of fear.

  3. Oh my goodness, Denise! What an ordeal. It’s wonderful, though, that you were able to get out for a while today! Hopefully, this virus will be history soon!
